Went thru this just after the storm, and waves were WAY up over the road. Had to time my travel across.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HIGHWAY 1 REPAIRS NEAR PIEDERAS BLANCAS NOW UNDERWAY
SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY – An emergency project to repair storm-damaged sections of Highway 1 north of the Piedras Blancas lighthouse is now underway.
Motorists will encounter one-way reversing traffic control Monday through Friday from 7 am until 4 pm. Moderate delays of 10-15 minutes are expected.
These repairs to the rock slope and highway are necessary at six locations within the project limits due to erosion of the bluffs as a result of the recent wave surge onto the shoreline and the highway.
Electronic message boards will be activated to inform motorists of this project. The contractor for this $500,000 project is Papich Construction of Pismo Beach, CA. This project is expected to be completed by the end of the year, weather permitting.
