HWY 1 CLOSURE UPDATE 1/11/17 3:00 PM

3:00 PM

Good afternoon everyone,

Update to the Public and Locals:

Thankfully, the slide at Fernwood (PM 47.03) has been cleared and Hwy. 1 at this location will open as of 4 pm. As of 5 pm this evening, January 11, the closure will be re-located down to Fuller’s (PM 42.2). Motorists can get from Carmel down past Big Sur to Fuller’s where there is more slide activity—much of this progress also depends on rain received tonight and tomorrow.

LOCAL RESIDENTS, EMERGENCY SERVICES AND EMPLOYEES will be allowed access from Fuller’s (PM 42.2) to Lucia (PM 23), as long as conditions allow.

School buses will continue with their usual routes–without having the parents meet the kids on the north side of the closure this afternoon–If anything changes, we’ll let you know.

LOCALS now have access to and from Ragged Pt. to Pitkins (PM 21.3). There are still multiple slides between Mud Creek (PM 8.8) and Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6).

but LOCALS needing access will be allowed in between.

So the update to the PUBLIC is: HWY. 1 REMAINS CLOSED from Ragged Pt. (SLO PM 72.87) to Fuller’s (MON PM 42.2). The hotline recording will be updated to reflect the changes. Another update will be provided tomorrow morning.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Be safe out there.

P.S. The photos are of Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6).
