An emergency operation began Nov. 1 to set concrete barriers along Highway 33 in Casitas Springs where the recent Vista Fire scorched hillsides above the main commuter route in and out of the Valley.
According to Caltrans, the work on the northbound side of the highway, south of Nye Road, is likely to continue through Nov. 3.
The northbound lane will be closed during the operation, so there will be alternating, one-way traffic control with a flagging crew according to Caltrans.
