  1. Today, Sunday, we were just down at north side of Paul’s Slide before 7am and it was CLOSED!! There was a woman there reading a bible that said you had to be there before 6am! Well, it ruined our plans but I hope it doesn’t ruin anyone else’s. I didn’t see anywhere on this website that they changed the hours. Please update!! This is so frustrating! My internet is spotty so I’m only on email once or twice a week. I am a real person here in Big Sur

  2. If you didn’t see it, you didn’t look. I’ve been publishing the new hours for WEEKS. Look at the date of the post. This post is a very old one, in changing-highway-condition-terms.

    On April 3rd I posted: “Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6):
    · As of March 22nd , there is limited access due to major excavation above the roadway; access is limited to 5:30am – 6:00am and 7:00pm – 7:30pm. This will be for a minimum of four to six weeks and we will continually evaluate for opportunities to improve local resident access.
    · For the Friday opportunities to resupply, access is limited to vehicles weighing 50,000 lbs., with a maximum vehicle length of 30 feet.
    · Work will performed 24/7 as conditions allow, and updates will continue to be provided.”
