Construction on Mussey Grade Road to repair damaged pavement and slopes and to fix drainage is expected to start this summer and be completed in the fall, according to the county.
County Supervisors designated money for the project last week.
The area of focus is on both sides of the road about .72 miles south of Fernbrook Drive. Construction is estimated to cost $550,000 and is available in the county road fund. The project was approved by the Ramona Community Planning Group in February.
The project involves rebuilding the damaged slopes from storms in December 2010, improving drainage and reconstructing damaged pavements. During construction, the county plans traffic control measures. Construction will take place within the public right-of-way and on private property for which temporary rights have been secured, according to the county.
