Highway One Closed, 3/13/18

As of 2 pm, Highway 1 to remain closed this afternoon and overnight. Will be reassessed in the am.

I have it on good authority that when the material was cleared a very large hole in the road that must be repaired. Of course, it hasn’t stopped raining today at all.

Cal Trans announced: Highway One is closed. THE SLIDE IS AT THE CHIMNEY, JUST SOUTH OF LIMEKILN – both lanes. There is no ETA on when it will open. Will post when I know more.

They could open it only to have it slam shut 1/2 hour (or less) later. Note that Cal Trans is not going UNDER this slide area. Too dangerous right now.
