It is the same as this am, i.e. Closed from Ragged Point to Nepenthe, but here is a photo of Paul’s Slide from the South you haven’t seen yet:
Photos by K.O.A.D (Known Only as Dano) Thanks, Dano…really puts it in perspective.
There continue to be more slides from Deetjen’s (PM 43.17) to Mud Creek (PM 8.8) that occurred yesterday, requiring the northern closure to move to Nepenthe (PM 43.8) with a lane closed at Fernwood (PM 47.03)
Top to Bottom: 1 and 2) just south of Grimes Canyon (PM 41.86); 3) near Anderson Canyon (PM 35); 4) around Dolan Point (PM 29.7) around half a mile north of where the CHP were posted; 5) Limekiln Campground (PM 20.76); it slid twice within half an hour mid-afternoon and CT cleared it—photo courtesy of John Davies (Limekiln Campgrounds).6) Deetjen’s (PM 43.17) ; 7)South Coast Center (PM 34.10); 8) Fernwood (PM 47.03)
The inclement weather continues to give us more slides at multiple locations, the newest and largest came overnight at Cow Cliffs (PM 28.35), but additional small slides between Cow Cliffs and now Deetjen’s (PM 43.17) require closure to extend to Nepenthe (PM 44) until further notice.
State Route 1 is now closed between Ragged Pt. (SLO 72.87) and Nepenthe (Mon 44). Another storm is expected tomorrow afternoon, Thursday, Feb. 9.
I Motorists may travel north on State Route 1 from Cambria to Ragged Point (SLO PM 72.87) or south from Carmel to Nepenthe’s (PM 44)
The roadway is not passable between Ragged Pt (SLO 72.87)and Nepenthe (PM 44)
*LOCALS MAY TRAVEL NORTH, CAREFULLY, FROM RAGGED PT. TO LIMEKILN AS THERE ARE 13 LOCATIONS WITH ONLY ONE LANE OPEN DUE TO ROCK/MUDSLIDES.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Our Maintenance, Geotech and Construction crews continue to work collaboratively and diligently, as much as safely possible in response to these rock/mudslides.
Another update will be provided on around mid-morning tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 9, or sooner if conditions change.
