All trails within Daley Ranch in Escondido have been reopened following the completion of the repaving of roads surrounding the Ranch House. The work was performed by Asphalt & Concrete Enterprises, Inc., of Santee and was completed approximately two weeks ahead of schedule and under budget.
The project may not have been completed ahead of schedule had it not been for Escondido businessman George Weir of George W. Weir Asphalt Construction, Inc., whose “above and beyond” efforts allowed the project to be completed in a timely manner. During the last evening of construction, the final load of asphalt was being delivered at approximately 7:00 p.m. when the dump truck inconveniently broke a drive axel at the bottom of La Honda Drive. Since the asphalt plant had closed by then there was no possibility of the contractor finishing the job that evening and his other commitments for the next few days unfortunately would have prevented him from finishing the work quickly. However, Project Manager Bud Oliveira contacted George Weir to see if by any chance he had approximately 10 tons of asphalt still on the road. Within 45 minutes George Weir personally escorted his truck to the site and the other contractor was able to complete the project.
