Geologist monitoring mess at Highway 17

(KRON) Highway 17 has been such a mess that an expert was called to the site to help speed up the clean-up progress.

A geologist in now monitoring the area to evaluate when it is safe to be worked on.

The northbound lanes remain closed Friday, as the highway has been a danger zone for drivers during this winter’s storms.

Work to clear the mudslide that has blocked the highway for a week was on and off Thursday as rain moved in and out.

It is looking to be a similar circumstance Friday.

Highway 17 is still one lane in each direction in the Scotts Valley area. Caltrans is not sure when 17 will be back to two lanes in each direction.
