HIGHWAY 1 UPDATE – Monday, June 25, 2018

HIGHWAY 1 UPDATE – Monday, June 25, 2018

State Route 1 in Monterey County remains closed from north of Salmon Creek, just south of the Ranger Station (PM 3) to just south of Gorda (PM 10) due to the Mud Creek slide. State Route 1 south of Salmon Creek is accessible via State Route 1 in San Luis Obispo County near Ragged Point.

REMINDER: Travelers still CANNOT access the entire length of Highway 1 from Carmel to Cambria but local businesses are open on both sides of Mud Creek. This is the last closure point along Big Sur. When it opens by the end of July, Hwy. 1 from Cambria to Carmel will be open to through traffic.

Mud Creek (PM 8.9)

Mud Creek had a major slide on Saturday, May 20, 2017, losing over 5 million cubic yards of material. Caltrans continues with its plan to realign the existing terrain. Caltrans will continuously evaluate the opening date as work progresses so we anticipate providing an update in July. It’s expected that even after the highway is re-open, intermittent lane closures and roadwork may continue. The updated current cost is at $54 million.

There is currently no public/local access through the Mud Creek area since this remains an active, emergency construction zone.

Last week: Continued work on North fill and material hauling. This week: Continue hauling in material for north fill and making grade for new highway alignment.

Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6)

Paul’s Slide is still active but the 24/7 traffic signal remains in place and temporary guardrail (k-rail) in the centerline. Scaling took place last Friday, June 22. See photos attached.

ADDITIONAL WORK—CALPORTLAND PAVING BETWEEN LUCIA (PM 23) AND JUST SOUTH OF PCB (45.52)

Final items continue taking place. Post Ranch rockery repair was completed last week. No work scheduled for this week. Project is near completion.

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

The next update will be on Monday, July 2.
