Contractors are in the process of completing drilling on an interlocking weave of 280 30-foot-deep holes in the roadbed. Three layers of holes in five-foot increments are also being drilled into the cliffside below. Number 9 rebar tested to withstand 25,000 pounds of tension will be inserted in the holes to help hold the roadbed in place. The holes will then be filled with grout to create a tight seal.
