A work crew hired by developer KB Homes has begun grading on a hillside west of San Ramon Valley Boulevard south of the Quail Ridge subdivision as part of an agreed upon mitigation of a potential landslide area.
During the approval process for Quail Ridge, geotechnical reports identified an area south of the planned development that showed the potential for a landslide that could affect San Ramon Valley Boulevard.
As part of the project approval, the developer is required to complete soils work to correct the landslide to eliminate any possibility of a future landslide. The work is being done as a precaution prior to the planned widening of San Ramon Valley Boulevard. Once the soil is graded and compacted it will be hydroseeded to allow for the return of the natural field grasses.
