Update, 1/27/17

Today’s update is the same as yesterday’s but with a photo of Cow Cliff from yesterday.


Photo of Big Creek Slide (PM 28.09 ) from yesterday.

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 afternoon, Saturday, Jan. 28, or sooner if conditions change.

Taken yesterday by Michael Troutman. Top to Bottom: Paul’s Slide, Cow Cliff, Anderson.

Also, scaling will be taking place today at Cow Cliff’s, but will make time and space for locals to get through, when possible. Unsure re Anderson, yet.
