FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HIGHWAY 1 TO CLOSE NORTH OF GORDA AT 4:30 PM TODAY
SLIDE CONTINUES TO CLOSE HIGHWAY 1 AT PM 39.5
MONTEREY / SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTIES – A full closure of Highway 1 will go into effect today at 4:30 this afternoon at PM 10.6, just north of the town of Gorda, due to a serious slip out of the roadway.
Residents who live north of PM 10.6 will have this one opportunity today to travel to the south if they desire.
At PM 39.5, south of the Torre Canyon Bridge, a slide continues to cover the roadway.
Crews are working with a long reach excavator today and hope to perform rock scaling tomorrow. We hope to get Highway 1 at PM 39.5 reopened by Sunday or Monday.
Road information and updates can also be found on Caltrans District 5 Social Media platforms: Twitter at: @CaltransD5, Facebook at: Caltrans Central Coast (District 5) and Instagram at: Caltrans_D5.
Our crews deserve to get home safely too.
Drive slowly and carefully in work zones.
