The Devil's Slide tunnel project is now at least a year behind schedule. Caltrans says crews working on the two tunnels at Devil's Slide have encountered soil movement which requires extra reinforcement work.

That will push the completion date to at least the end of 2012. It also will push up the cost of the $350 million project.

Caltrans was hoping to have the tunnels completed by the end of this year. Work began in 2007.
