Red Phone, what’s the huge pile of earth west of U.S. 101 at
Coyote Creek Golf Drive all about? There’s this huge pile of earth
and trucks are working at night.
“Red Phone, what’s the huge pile of earth west of U.S. 101 at Coyote Creek Golf Drive all about? There’s this huge pile of earth and trucks are working at night. What are they building or storing there?”
“Red Phone, I have noticed some pretty major grading taking place on the west side of (U.S.) 101 at Coyote Creek. It looks like an old garbage dump when they dig in to it. The trail has been re-routed around the construction. What is going on there?”
“Hi, Red Phone, Can you tell me what they are doing at the off-ramp for Coyote Creek Golf Course off (U.S.) 101. They only work at night and for the past few months it seems like all they are doing is moving dirt. Are they building something there and if so what?”
Red Phone: Concerned Readers, Red Phone contacted Bernard Walik, public information officer for Caltrans, who said it is excess material generated from the U.S. 101 grinding project.
“The contractor (who performed the paving) leased the property from Caltrans for about one year to temporarily store the materials removed from the grinding operation,” Walik said. “They will permanently remove it around June 2011.”
There you have it, good callers. Hope that clears things up.
