Highway 1 Update
Friday, February 10
10:45 AM

Photos of Deetjen’s from yesterday (PM 43.17)…blurry due to rain.

I apologize for a few minor errors or misleading information on my previous update this morning; more specifically:

1) Thankfully, we are not expecting any more rain or storms this weekend—that occurred last night.

2) The southern access point that locals can reach from the northern closure at Nepenthe (PM 44) is “SANTA” Lucia Ranch (PM 31.10)—not to be confused with Lucia (PM 23) which is not reachable from the north or south today.

3) I only mentioned locals going “south” from Nepenthe to Santa Lucia Ranch, but I truly meant to say “travel north and south between Nepenthe and Santa Lucia Ranch”

******************************************************************************

The inclement weather continues to give us more slides at multiple locations, the largest challenges being at: Mud Creek (PM 8.8), Chimney Slide ((PM 19), 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 continue at Nepenthe (PM 44) until further notice.

***SAME INFORMATION, NEW INFORMATION FOR LOCALS***

State Route 1 is now closed between Ragged Pt. (SLO 72.87) and just south of Nepenthe (Mon 44).

Motorists may travel north on State Route 1 from Cambria to Ragged Point (SLO PM 72.87) or south from Carmel to Nepenthe’s (PM 44).

The roadway is not passable between Ragged Pt (SLO 72.87)and Nepenthe (PM 44)

*LOCALS MAY NOTTRAVEL NORTH BETWEEN RAGGED POINT AND LUCIA RANCH (PM 31.10)…MUD CREED IS NOT PASSABLE AND CONSTRUCTION CREWS ARE NOT PRESENT TODAY…BUT LOCALS MAY TRAVEL NORTH/SOUTHFROM BETWEEN NEPENTHE AND SANTA LUCIA RANCH (31.10) AS THERE ARE SEVERAL LOCATIONS WITH ONLY ONE LANE OPEN DUE TO ROCK/MUDSLIDES.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Our Maintenance, Geotech and Construction crews continue to work collaboratively and diligently, as much as safely possible in response to these rock/mudslides.

Another update will be provided on around mid-morning tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 11, or sooner if conditions change.
