'S Curve' reconstruction begins in South Colton
Tuesday, April 17, 2012 - 5:18 pm

Initial clearing of land has taken place as contractors get ready to start straightening and rebuilding the "Letter S" curves south of South Colton on State Highway 56, as shown in this photo submitted by Pete Austin. Traffic has been limited to one lane, controlled by a traffic light for a number of years since much of the roadway was lost due to erosion from heavy rains. The $4.6 million construction project is slated for completion in October 2013.
