10/14/2011 update

PG&E spokesman Paul Moreno with an update for the power pole replacement at the Spanish Creek Bridge, "PG&E crews have made very good progress and we expect to complete repairs to this line by about 9 p.m. Thursday Oct. 13, and restore power to the 20 customers impacted.  We were able to do this work by installing only two new poles.  PG&E crews numbering more than a dozen workers installed the new poles and wires."

This should eliminate the need for controlled traffic at the construction site.

Highway 70 update at Spanish Creek Bridge

Feather Publishing
10/12/2011 update: From PG&E spokesman Paul Moreno

"Because of the conditions of the hill stability, we are not going to repair or replace the pole which leaned after the earthslide.  Instead, PG&E is installing about five new wooden poles and about 2,000 feet of new powerlines east of the slide, where the ground is more stable."
