HIGHWAY 1 UPDATE – Tuesday, Oct. 17

HIGHWAY 1 UPDATE – Tuesday, Oct. 17

The State Route 1 closure, due to Mud Creek slide, will move from its current location north of Salmon Creek, just south of the Ranger Station (Mon. Co. PM 3) to just north of Ragged Point (SLO Co. PM 78.87) for the Elephant Trunk Drainage modification. The closure location change will take place next week from Monday, Oct. 23 at 6 am until Friday, Oct. 27 at 3 pm. Salmon Creek will not be accessible next week.

The drainage modification is necessary at the recently completed Elephant Trunk Soldier Pile Wall project and consists of welding, hoisting and anchoring the drainage pipe on the hillside. This roadwork should be completed by 3 pm on Friday, Oct. 27, weather permitting.

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