Photo of Rock Scaling at Anderson Canyon (PM 35.4 ) today.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Our Maintenance and Geotech crews have been working diligently, clearing, cleaning, and scaling as much as safely possible in response to these rock/mudslides.


*We have numerous slides between the closure points, the largest being at: Mud Creek (PM 8.8, shown above), Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6), Big Creek (PM 28.09) and at Anderson Cyn. Bridge (PM 35.4)

CONTINUOUS SLIDES KEEP ROAD CLOSED FROM RAGGED POINT (SLO PM 72.87) TO FULLER’S (MON PM 42) DUE TO ROCK/MUDSLIDES AT MULTIPLE LOCATIONS. All Motorists may travel south on Hwy. 1 from Carmel to Fuller’s (PM 42) or travel north from Cambria to Ragged Point.

CHP is monitoring the closure at Fuller’s.

Another update will be provided tomorrow at noontime, Friday , Jan. 27, or sooner if conditions change.
