Hello Big Sur!
From Raymond Martinez, PIO… the burn went well today and they laid down a lot of fire. They are going to continue it tomorrow. In the afternoon they plan to bring the fire up to Highway 1 so they will close the highway to manage this. I don’t know specifically where they will be. It’s going to be very smoky in the valley for the next couple days so plan accordingly.
From Susana Cruz, Caltrans. Susana called me one minute after I received this news release to tell me Caltrans will be closing the highway from 2:00 PM, August 14 until 5:00 AM, August 15. So, add that to the information and we all know things can change. Hopefully the highway will open early.
