Caltrans closes Highway 87 for major pavement repairs

Highway 87 closures

After closing northbound Highway 87 for major pavement repair work from Sept. 22-25, Caltrans is set to do the same in the southbound direction the weekend of Oct. 20. Closure will start Fridays after 9 p.m. and conclude the following Monday by no later than 5 a.m.

Highway 87 will be closed between highways 280 and 85  to allow for concrete pavement in traffic lanes to be replaced. Detours will be in effect. All work is dependent on weather and other conditions. These weekend closures are intended to reduce the number of overnight lane closures needed to complete this work by 2024 instead of completing in late 2025.

Caltrans will perform major pavement rehabilitation on the two center traffic lanes in both the northbound and southbound directions of Highway 87. The roadway has become worn and in need of major repairs due to decades of high traffic use.

Get ‘Unhinged’ again

Winchester Mystery House kicked off the Halloween season early with the third haunt in its “Unhinged” series.

“Unhinged: Housewarming” opened Sept. 22 and runs through Halloween night Oct. 31. The haunt is set in 1923, shortly after the death of Sarah Winchester, when Hollywood couple Miles and Flora Taylor have taken up residence of the Winchester Mystery House and are holding a housewarming party to celebrate, but things go a bit sideways as the night progresses and guests make their way from activities in the estate’s front garden and into the house.

Tickets start at $64.99 at winchestermysteryhouse.com/unhinged. A limited number of RIP tickets starting at $89.99 are available and include expedited access through two haunt routes, as well as “Unhinged” swag and a complimentary drink voucher to calm your nerves.
