This past winter's storms washed out so much of the road. County officials shut it down indefinitely.

The popular roadway was immediately put at top of the repair list by the county.

The temporary fix is now complete but engineers continue to work on a long-term fix.


That means drivers will still find some restrictions in the area.

There's also good news for East Bay drivers. Miner Road in Orinda is on track to reopening next Monday.

Back in January the area was just a huge sinkhole. It caused the 97-year old bridge to collapse, forcing residents to take a narrow detour.

Bit by bit the bay area is recovering from a winter that was brutal on the roads.
