HIGHWAY 1 REMAINS CLOSED DUE TO SLIDE

MONTEREY COUNTY: The hillside remains very unstable from the slide with loose material. Caltrans geologists, maintenance and construction crews remain onsite clearing the debris, scaling, making repairs to the roadway and netting and conducting a more detailed inspection.

Caltrans will have a better assessment and opening estimate in 24 hours.Currently, there is no estimated time of opening.

Highway 1 was closed yesterday at 9 am in both directions at Pitkins/Rain Rocks (PM 21.3), 1.8 miles south of Lucia and 25 miles south of Big Sur due to a large boulder that came down just south of the rock shed project.

All businesses in the area will remain open.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway construction zones.
