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.

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. Heat/cold+expand/contract+earthquake=slide
    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.

  4. 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.

  5. A fluid situation as the closure points are being moved. Not sure why they have the “location” listed as Templeton though….
