Temporary closures on County Road 213 for Purple Cliffs cleanup

Due to safety concerns along County Road 213 (La Posta Road) during the cleanup of the Purple Cliffs area, road closed barricades will be placed for workers’ safety. The road will be closed weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. until the cleanup is complete. There is currently no estimate as to when the work will be completed.

Also, there have been volunteers asking to assist in the clean-up effort. The contracted crew members are trained in hazardous material handling, involving waste such as used needles and other potentially harmful materials and therefore work by non-professionals can not be performed.

On days when inclement weather or other situations prevent crews from working, the road will remain open to regular traffic.
