Highway 1 Update
Wednesday, February 8
The slides continue from Deetjen’s (PM 43.17) to Mud Creek (PM 8.8), requiring the northern closure to remain at Nepenthe (PM 43.8)…Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6) is by far one of the worst slides at this time, video included…photos self-explanatory.
The inclement weather continues to give us more slides at multiple locations, the largest challenges being at: Mud Creek (PM 8.8), Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6), Big Creek (PM 28.09), Cow Cliffs (PM 28.35) and Deetjen’s (PM 43.17), require closure to extend to Nepenthe (PM 44) until further notice.
***SAME INFORMATION AS THIS MORNING, NEW PHOTOS***
State Route 1 is now closed between Ragged Pt. (SLO 72.87) and Nepenthe (Mon 44). Another storm is expected tomorrow afternoon, Thursday, Feb. 9.
