Sawyer Camp Trail will be closed for two days on November 2nd and 3rd (Wednesday and Thursday).
During the closure, our project team will deliver additional rock to our new access road segments, and continue seismic upgrades on our Crystal Springs/San Andreas Pipeline. Water in this pipeline has been “turned off” for the months of October and November to facilitate this work.
Notice the unusual green color on some slopes along the trail? This is a temporary, first step of re-vegetation. This bright green soil stabilizer will turn brown and blend in with the surrounding landscape as it dries. During next year’s dry season, we’ll be re-planting native plants in these locations.
One more thing of interest to trail users: the Lower Crystal Springs Dam concrete pours will continue through mid-November. The biggest day will be on Tuesday, November 1st when approximately 65 trucks will deliver cement using
Skyline Blvd., Crystal Springs Road and Polhemus Road. Much smaller pours (just a few trucks) are expected on October 28th (Friday) and October 31st (Monday).
