The City of San Diego announced the beginning of an emergency construction project to stabilize a cliff area and roadway in La Jolla following an analysis by geology experts. 

Experts reportedly discovered a zone of weakness on a local sea cave called Cook’s Crack that's located underneath Coast Boulevard and recommended action be taken. The City immediately shut down the street Thursday evening and initiated an emergency contract to reinforce the cave.

As part of the stabilization project, sections of Cave Street and Coast Boulevard will be closed temporarily to all traffic for about six weeks while the work is completed. All efforts will be made to accommodate access for nearby residents and businesses in some fashion.

I hope that the cracks are sealed, and that no substantial cave is plugged.
