SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco officials have shut down one lane of a coastal highway because powerful winter waves have eroded the sandy bluff that separates the road from Ocean Beach.
The city has closed about 600 feet of one of two southbound
lanes of Highway 1. The scenic stretch is also called the Great Highway.
Frank Filice of the Department of Public Works says officials are worried about public safety, as well as traffic vibrations that could contribute to the erosion.
He says he doesn't have an estimate of how long the closure will last.
San Francisco officials are working with the Army Corps of
Engineers and the National Park Service to develop a long-range plan to deal with the erosion.
