MONTEREY COUNTY — Caltrans has received confirmation from National Weather Service (NOAA) data that the significant storms have passed in the areas of Mud Creek (PM 8.9) and Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6) on State Route 1 in the Big Sur area. Caltrans Geotech, Maintenance Design and Maintenance crews assessed all road areas within the closure limits earlier today between storms. Contractor and Caltrans crews are busy cleaning and clearing slide material from the roadway. As a result, Highway 1 at Mud Creek will re-open today, Friday Feb. 15 at 12 noon; Hwy. 1 at Paul’s Slide will re-open at 5 pm today.  Motorists will encounter traffic control at these locations today and tomorrow.

Thanks to the Big Sur community and coastal travelers for their cooperation and patience.
