Long conversation WITH Caltrans, definitely not opening before Friday. Badlu damaged hanging rock needs to be brought down and then once on the ground, blown up.
9 am local info indicates slide at Salmon Creek and highway fully blocked.

Thanks for the heads up… turned around.
This is confusing. From Fullers Point (mile marker 42) to Ragged Point (approximately 45 miles away) for a rock slide? Exactly where is the rock slide?
Probably because it’s south of the business are on the north coast so it doesn’t affect them and saves people an 80 mile round trip since they can’t get through.
There was an earthquake on the border of SLO and Monterey county on the 25th around 4:30, my parents were at the epicenter driving home and saw rocks fall from the hill on to the road. According to the Earthquake watch it was a 4.7 earthquake. Me and my brother felt it, it shoock the house for a couple of seconds. for more on the earthquake: https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/nc73644630/executive
Here we go again. It is a true sign of fall/winter!
I know Fuller beach but never heard of Fuller point.
It’s the price we pay for living in the most beautiful area in the U.S. I’m just thankful no one was hurt, when that slide occurred.
In south Cayucos we got two very
small jolts. It was far less than the 6.5 Dec. 22,2003 san simeon earthquake which caused an estimated $250 million of damage.
A fluid situation as the closure points are being moved. Not sure why they have the “location” listed as Templeton though….
