One lane closure will occur along southbound and northbound Highway 1 between Salmon Creek and Grey Slip for paving work from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Big Sur River Run
From Jasmine Horan: “Those of you that drove the south coast during the road closures or slides, likely knew Arleen. Most likely she made you laugh and smile more than once. Sad to learn she passed away of cancer, but happy we have a slide named after her to remind us to give thanks for what’s in front of us because you never know what’s around the corner. Thank you for all the warm smiles and welcome greetings.
