    US HIGHWAY 101 SAN MIGUEL REHABILITATION PROJECT CONTINUES WITH BRIDGE WORK NEAR 10TH STREET BEGINNING MONDAY, NOV.6   

    • The railing from the 10th Street Bridge will be demolished beginning Monday, Nov. 6 through Saturday, Nov. 11 from 6 am until 6 pm with motorists encountering up to 20 minute delays to allow for the clearing of debris from the roadway on 10th Street.
    • The placement of girders for the widening of the 10th Street Bridge will begin on Monday, Nov. 13 at 6 am with the placement of a large crane on 10thStreet. Traffic will be held in place when these girders are being lifted.  Motorists will encounter delays not to exceed 30 minutes. 
    • The 10th Street on/off ramps will remain open with only the areas under the bridge to be closed.  Motorists may detour by using Mission Street or Cemetery Road to reach US Highway 101
    Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.

    Beginning Oct. 30 --traffic switch/lane closures in the following locations:

    A traffic switch will result in the closure of the northbound No. 1 (left) lane of US Highway 101 from the off-ramp at South Mission Street to the 10th Street Overcrossing. In addition, the southbound No. 1 (left) lane of US Highway 101 will be closed at the 10th Street Overcrossing. These lane closures will be in effect 24/7 during this phase of the project.

    "Haunted Adobe" was a great success.   Almost 300 participants and due to the illness of   John Burkle,    Joyce Herman filled in telling Ghost Stories this year.  Special thanks to Joyce, Paso High School Drama students and all the volunteers with the Friends of the Adobe for making the event possible.
    Here are a few photos for your enjoyment.

    Glancing Back,
    Remembering Our Heritage
    The San Miguel Resource Connection has taken on the San Miguel History Project and this webpage as its major projects.  It is intended to preserve as much of the San Miguel History as possible and share in a way to encourage others to take an interest and understand the rich heritage of the community.       *****
    What follows is a two page history of San Miguel that I found on file at the Paso Robles Library.  I do not know who wrote it or when.  I am interested in talking with the writer to discover how they arrived at some of the statements.  So if you know who that may be or if you have something to add, please let Laverne know at 2011SMRC@gmail.com

    Have you noticed the bridge railing design at south Mission St?  Did you know it was designed to coordinate with the balcony railing at the Caledonia?
