It’s been over a year since a big chunk of Golden Gardens Drive tumbled down the hill after record-breaking rainfall. It’s been closed since then, and repair work was scheduled to be completed this month.
But now SDOT says the weather is delaying the reopening until mid-February at the earliest. “The extreme cold front that was present during much of the month of December has delayed construction of the remaining items required to open the roadway: completion of the asphalt ridge (channels drainage) and the roadway shoulder along the west side,” says SDOT. “This remaining work is temperature and weather sensitive and cannot be completed until the cold and inclement weather has passed.” (Thanks Boxcar for the tip!)
