The portion of Sunset Valley Road (8N09) from Cachuma Saddle to the Nira Campground will be closed from 7:00 am on October 27 until 5:00 pm October 28 to allow crews to safely conduct paving operations. Starting today, road crews will begin clearing dirt and other debris from the road to prepare for paving. Visitors should anticipate temporary delays through Wednesday.
Motorized travel to and from Davy Brown and Nira Campgrounds will be impacted during this time, and visitors are encouraged to call the Santa Lucia Ranger District with questions related to this project.
In all, nearly 5.4 miles of intermittant road will be improved as a result of this road work.
“The Sunset Valley Road is heavily used by the driving public as it provides access to some of the more scenic vistas on the Forest,” said Santa Lucia District Ranger Kathleen Phelps. “Folks will notice a big difference when this work has been completed.”
Forest visitors are encouraged to contact the Santa Lucia Ranger District at (805) 925-9538 for more detailed information about this area and for the latest conditions.
