CALTRANS TO REOPEN HWY. 1 AT MUD CREEK/PAUL’S SLIDE THIS MORNING FOLLOWING TEMPORARY CLOSURE

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 areas within the closure limits earlier today.

Highway 1, including Mud Creek and Paul’s Slide will fully reopen by 10 am today, Wednesday, Feb. 27.

Caltrans’ Geotech, Maintenance and Construction units are on call and prepared to inspect/clean up when each storm ends during the daylight hours and it is safe to be onsite again. Caltrans’ goal is to open the roadway as quickly and safely as possible and our staff remains on-call 24/7.

I got this tweet from Cal-Trans, Dist. 5, at 9:12 am, but have not received the “official” word from Susana, None-the-less I feel it is worth sharing:

“#Hwy1 Update: rainfall was less than forecast & road damage minimal so coast route is now fully OPEN thru #BigSur. @bigsurkate @BigSurCC @CHP_Coastal”
