Rocky Creek Photo update

These were taken on my first trip north after the slip out, April 29th. Gives you an idea about what the soil nails are.

I had planned to post this yesterday, but somehow got distracted about 1/2 way through my photo uploads. Here it is now. And that brings us up-to-date on the three major highway construction projects along Big Sur’s coastal route.

There may be changes in the air for the Alder Creek slide. There have been several injuries, including one broken arm, so Cal-Trans is reconsidering all their options. Let you know when there is something “official.” Right now all I have are what I call reliable rumors.

  1. Are the injuries with the construction crew? Sounds bad, and unusual. I may be pissed about the timing but I don’t want anyone to die trying to fix it.
    Wonderful photographs always from you. It’s really impressive, that’s a big drop I kept thinking. Thank you for all the history past and in the making, Kate.

  2. Thanks for the update Kate. Great photos, as always. Sorry to hear about injuries at the Alder Creek slide. This is not an easy fix!

  3. Still gives me the heebie-jeebies to drive over that section. 😉
