The problem has been talked about for years and years, finally the project was started and is now in the final finishing stages. Two tunnels bored through the hills connected by two high bridges over the valleys are ready for traffic.
Personally I've ridden or driven that stretch many times in the past on the way to Half Moon Bay and a small beach. The oceans actions are so strong there was always a pile of small rocks in my swim trunks! I really enjoyed the place. Here are photos of the work in progress.
