Muir Valley is Closed...temporarily

Postby weber » Thu May 29, 2008 6:57 pm

Last weekend made it clear that the approach road to Muir Valley needs to be rebuilt from scratch to keep careful drivers (the majority) from being terrorized by reckless asses. The neighbors, and many of our visitors are justifiably angry. The neighbor to the south, a few weeks ago, while riding his horse, was struck by a speeding car catapulting over one of the blind hills. Fortunately it was a glancing blow with only minor injury.

Out of concern for our visitors’ and neighbors’ safety, we have no choice but to close the road Friday morning, May 30, 2008 and bring in heavy excavation equipment to do a major rebuild. Muir Valley will be closed indefinitely until construction is finished. The two blind hills will be removed, the road will be re-shaped and crowned, culverts will be installed and ditches dug.

Weather conditions and other concerns with utilities may postpone this work, but at this moment it is a “go.â€

UPDATE

Due to a very heavy rain last Wednesday, the road construction was set back a few days while the soil dries out. The excavation is finished, but we won't be able to put gravel down until mid next week, if the weather cooperates.

Consequently, Muir Valley will remain closed until further notice. Please do NOT attempt to drive in. You will damage the roadbed and probably get stuck.

If (!) the weather cooperates, we hope to reopen Friday, June 13.
