I rode Stage on Saturday. They have ripped off the asphalt from the south side of the southern hill. It is currently packed dirt. Looks like they are repaving the road. I think the sign said they would be working on it through September. It was ok to climb northbound. I did see a few people heading southbound, but I wouldn't want to descend on that surface.
I wonder why the county (or Caltrans) felt this road needed to be repaved. Stage never seemed that bad to me and I can think of other roads that need more attention (west side OLH, North street in Pescadero, Gazos Creek).
