With freezing water on the roadways following the snow removal there's concern about the black ice.
At the time, people were polarized. But since the public hearings were held, we really haven't had any complaints. We remain sensitive to the issue and understand how emotional it is.
This is just a typical Tahoe storm. Our crews are always ready for avalanche control and we would much rather have a man-made slide bury the road then a natural slide.
We're back to the status quo. After all the discussion we've had about this issue, there's no reason to make any changes.
What a unique opportunity to enjoy this freeway before it officially opens.
We came out of the weekend storms pretty well. We had some road closures, but our crews handled it well and now our major concern is getting sand and salt on the icy roads.
No other roads were undermined and there were no major mudslides. Considering the amount of rainfall, things turned out to be in pretty good shape.
We are proud of it. We put a lot of work into it. It did cost a little more, but it was worth it.
We're still doing avalanche control when necessary. Especially (in the) upper regions.
