Will Caltrans Ever Clean Up Highway 1?

Highway 1 between the tunnels and Linda Mar needs weeding and cleanup all along both shoulders, including removal or repair of the crumpled Caltrans construction sign on the downhill side. The entire roadway north of the tunnels is littered with trash, debris, and weeds on both sides.

(We submitted a maintenance request/complaint June 29 on the Caltrans District 4 online form. Caltrans replied July 14 that it has scheduled cleanup of this disgraceful stretch of highway between Linda Mar and the tunnels. THAT WAS MORE THAN A MONTH AGO, AND IT STILL HAS NOT BEEN DONE. Please ask Caltrans to get off the dime and do the job. We note that removing weeds and trash may help visibility on this dangerous S curve, where bicyclists wobble up and down the narrow-to-nonexistent shoulders, taking their lives in their hands and making motorists extremely nervous.)
