Rockfall scaling work next week on Midland

Rock scaling work to remove loose rock from the cut slope along the western side of the 2900-3000 blocks of Midland Avenue will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, March 27-31.

The work is being performed by Yenter Companies and will include a temporary rock catchment fence to prevent rocks from traveling down the slope below Midland to Hager Lane.

Midland Avenue is anticipated to remain open in an alternating one-lane configuration during the scaling work.
