  • IN THE NEWS: With trowels, knives, brushes and lots of imagination, workers have been etching granite-like features this week into the new retaining walls along Jameson Canyon/Highway 12, turning miles of concrete into natural-looking stone. The crews create ridges and cracks in fresh layers of concrete to give the man-made material a natural “fractured granite” appearance. This cosmetic work may be completed next week, as Caltrans comes close to wrapping up the $130 million widening of Jameson Canyon after two years of construction.
