The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain. – Dolly Parton
The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The many recent storms have replenished our depleted water supply, and have also provided many challenges for the travelling public. County road crews have been working around the clock to repair storm damaged roads. Please visit the County of Santa Cruz Public Works homepage at http://www.dpw.co.santa-cruz.ca.us/ for more information.
Fortunately, our site has weathered the storms with minimal damage so far. Graniterock crews have been doing a great job of preparing the site for rainy periods, and monitoring and maintaining the site during the rain. This means that when clear weather returns, they will be able to get right back to work.
Factors affecting the project completion date include weather and other unanticipated construction related issues. At this time, the projected completion date is August, 2017.
