The Capistrano Dispatch: Work on Valle Road


The city says work will resume Monday on the widening of Valle Road from San Juan Creek Road to La Novia Avenue, a project that has drawn scorn from citizens and city leaders alike since SunCal’s bankruptcy left behind a weed-covered strip of dirt.


The city issued a “notice of non-performance” last February against SunCal for failing to do any significant construction on several public works projects connected to the Pacifica San Juan development, including the widening of Valle Road. The bonding company, Arch Insurance Group, hired a company to complete the work.
