STATE ROUTE 1 IN MONTEREY COUNTY IS REMAINS FULLY CLOSED IN BOTH DIRECTIONS AT MUD CREEK UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Attached is a picture of Mud Creek from yesterday which I feel is important to share with you.

THE INFORMATION BELOW IS FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS AND DELIVERY VEHICLES ONLY;

Good morning everyone,

· Many of you, especially local residents, are tired of the lack of access. Although we empathize with you, we will not risk your safety or anyone else’s when slide activity continues and there is poor visibility to be able to see the top of the slide. I’m only sharing one of four videos I received. Mud Creek has been active since January.

A non-rainy day does not mean slide activity ceases. Mud Creek may be closed through next week but I will provide an update mid-morning Monday once our crews have had a chance to conduct an assessment and make progress. So for now, Nacimiento-Fergusson is the road to take when exiting south or going north.

[The only Public access on Highway 1 remains, using Nacimiento-Fergusson, is Gorda (PM 10) to the south, and Limekiln State Park (PM 20) to the north.]

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Have a pleasant weekend.
