FULL CLOSURE, HIGHWAY ONE – CRAB LAB TO RAGGED POINT, 2/20/17

Slide north of Hurricane Point covering both lanes, another near Soberanes Point. Trees and power lines down at Fernwood. Mud Creek is very active again, and then there are all those in between. Highway closed to ALL from Ragged Point to Fernwood earlier, but now extended to Crab Lab. Full Closure to everyone between.

Got word that Esalen is planning a massive evac of 60 by helicopter when there is a break in the weather. Cannot confirm as their land lines and Satellite Internet are both down.

  5. Hey, Three big cheers to the county crew clearing the tree from Plaskett Ridge Rd. this morning! Right-on crew! Big root balls full of sludgy mud, narrow twisting road and pouring rain and they killed it. Big appreciation and gratitude for their work! Thank you.

  8. Well, I hope there is helicopter rescue for everyone who needs it. I cannot remember when the road was this trashed. I remember being trapped int he Highlands when the Carmel River bridge was taken out. It affected all of us int he Highlands. Good luck to you all.

  18. Just drove from River Inn to Carmel.
    Multiple slides on the road but you can drive around them. At the Crab Lab – they let you through going north. They are letting folks through going south if you are a resident of Palo…or probably anywhere north of Hurricane
    Point. Subject to change, of course.
