An eroding road edge along upper Arastradero Road that was undercut by roiling floodwaters in Los Trancos Creek last winter will receive temporary repairs starting Tuesday, according to a notice from the Town of Portola Valley.
The Santa Clara County Roads and Airports Department informed the town that the roadwork should be completed in one week. Drivers near the Arastradero and Alpine roads areas should expect traffic delays.
Santa Clara County has placed an electronic sign board on Alpine Road near Glenoaks Equestrian Center to inform drivers of the temporary road work. The permanent repairs are expected to begin in one year.
Residents living near the road reported last February that erosion of the creek bank created a sheer drop-off of 10 feet down that endangered bicyclists. County crews, who were backed up with major road repairs elsewhere in the county due to the winter storms, made temporary restriping and added a bicycle sharrow in the road in the meantime.
