The Great Sand Removal Project Has Begun

Great Highway south from Lincoln to Sloat will be closed during the day this week for its annual sand removal project. As expected, sand gets blown from the beach onto the highway, and once a year the Department of Public Works does its best to remove all of it. While northbound lanes will be open, motorists are advised to use alternative routes like Sunset Boulevard. [SF Examiner/photo via Sergio Ruiz]
