 Northbound traffic to be closed May–August for safety improvements 

A project that will make it easier for pedestrians to share Pebble Beach Drive with motorists could also mean long detours for the residents who live on the scenic lane.

The Pebble Beach Drive Safety Project will start May 1 and is expected to be finished by the end of August, the Del Norte County engineering division announced last week. The road will be open to southbound traffic only during that time, according to the announcement.

“It’s to minimize confusion,” said Assistant Engineer Rosanna Bower. “A lot of residents will be able to (use) some of the side streets and get to their homes from a southbound direction.”
