Cathedral Oaks Interim Cribwall Repair Project

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option


This project will construct interim repairs to the crib wall to keep it in a safe condition until a permanent solution is designed and constructed.

Purpose and Need

There has been structural degradation inside the crib wall due to surface drainage migrating through the face of the crib wall. The soils within the crib wall provide resistance to settlement or other movement. 

Strategic Plan Goal

Strengthen Infrastructure

Funding Sources

Funding for this project is through Measure A local funds for the design phase.

Current Phase

The portion of Cathedral Oaks between Winchester Circle and Calle Real is currently closed due to damages sustained in the recent winter storms. Heavy rains and storm runoff have heavily damaged the slopes and 40’ high cribwalls supporting Cathedral Oaks Road and the adjacent bike path, prompting the road’s closure and cordoning off areas of damage. The City is reviewing options for both temporary re-opening of the road and permanent repair of the slope and cribwalls. In keeping with the disaster declarations at both the County and State level, the City is coordinating assessment and repair efforts with County, state and federal agencies. Initial inspections have been completed by County and state emergency management officials, and the City’s engineers are monitoring both the road and slope conditions as further inspections and assessments are scheduled with state and federal officials. Pending a determination of the extents of damage, costs of repair, and available funding, this portion of Cathedral Oaks will remain closed until further notice.
