Repair work danger


Help us with our fire protection concern on Corral Canyon Road, which affects all of El Nido, Vista Mar, Barrymore, and the Malibu Bowl and parkland beyond. The city chose Sept. 7 through Jan. 8 to repair the bridge at the throat of Corral Canyon Road. The crews have limited our travel to a twisted one lane.

Of course, it rained this week. Still, we are probably in a fire season of major risk. Many of our neighbors are upset about the stricture. We wonder if a fire truck could get through the one lane. We know from experience that in case of a serious canyon fire, we could not have an exit route because the fire trucks would have to come in immediately.

We citizens want a review of this matter and a safety plan.
