A: Miguel from Salinas emailed and asked us, "what is the green stuff they're spraying over the area where the construction is taking place on Espinosa and Highway 101 in Salinas?"
According to the Transportation Agency of Monterey County, the green stuff is used to prevent erosion when it rains, as it consists of seeds to stabilize the dirt so it doesn't move. This is commonly placed around construction sites. The construction is all part of the Prunedale Improvement Project, which is a project to address traffic safety issues on this busy corridor. The focus for construction crews is to get the spray on before the rainy season really hits.
