BIG SUR, Calif. — Caltrans released its strategy to expedite the rebuilding and reopening of Highway 1 at the massive Mud Creek landslide, south of Big Sur.
A new road will traverse over the landslide, Caltrans announced Tuesday afternoon. “The new roadway will be realigned across the landslide and will be buttressed with a series of embankments, berms, rocks, netting, culverts and other stabilizing material,” Caltrans said.
Caltrans did not say when the construction project is expected to be complete.
“This plan is a win-win for the hard-hit Big Sur community and this pristine coastal environment,” Caltrans District 5 Director Tim Gubbins said. “Our emergency contractor continues working dawn to dusk every day.”
