HIGHWAY 1 UPDATE – Monday, August 7

HIGHWAY 1 UPDATE – Monday, August 7:

Highway 1 in Monterey County continues to provide 35 total miles of Hwy. 1 to the public from south of Gorda (PM 10) to just south of Pfeiffer Canyon (PM 45.5), accessible only via Nacimiento-Fergusson Road. State Route 1 remains closed from north of Salmon (just south of the Ranger Station (PM 3) to just south of Gorda (PM 10) due to the Mud Creek event. State Route 1 south of Salmon Creek is accessible via State Route 1 in San Luis Obispo County, past Ragged Point to Salmon Creek.

REMINDER: travelers CANNOT go all the way on Hwy 1 but local businesses are open on both sides of the closure points at Pfeiffer Canyon and Salmon Creek.

Mud Creek (PM 8.9)

Mud Creek had a major slide on Saturday, May 20, 2017, losing 5 million cubic yards of material. Geotechnical and radar assessments continue at the site, with a Caltrans plan to realign the existing terrain announced last week. A tentative cost and timeline is targeted to be announced at the end of August. Roadway remains impassable.

Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6)

Paul’s Slide continues to provide access to the public 24/7, with one-way reversing traffic control with flaggers.

Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge [PCB] (PM 45.52)

· Last girders continue to be trucked to the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge construction site from near Stockton this week with girder assembly taking place in preparation for the bridge launching over the canyon.

· Public access is still on schedule for mid-to-late September.

Caltrans reminds motorists to move over and slow down when driving through highway work zones.

  1. Hi, this looks like a typo error.

    ” State Route 1 remains closed from north of Salmon (just south of the Ranger Station (PM 3) to just south of Gorda (PM 10) due to the Mud Creek event.”

    Shouldn’t it read “State Route 1 remains closed from north of Salmon (just south of the Ranger Station (PM 13) to just south of Gorda (PM 10) due to the Mud Creek event.”

    as the PM is increasing as you travel north. Plaskett Creek Campground is PM 13.7. Google maps shows the closure just south of there.
