FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HIGHWAY 1 IN NORTHERN SLO COUNTY SUBJECT TO
WEEKDAY ONE-HOUR DELAYS AT SITE OF STILL ACTIVE SLIDE

SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY – Continued efforts to remove slide material from above the roadway on Highway 1 in northern San Luis Obispo County will result in one-hour delays for travelers on weekdays during daytime hours.

Beginning Tuesday Dec. 4, traffic control in the immediate vicinity of the Polar Star slide, one mile south of Ragged Pont at Post Mile 71.8, will hold to the following schedule.

Monday thru Friday, Highway 1 will be subject to traffic control with one-hour delays from 7 am to 5 pm. The highway will be fully open on weekdays, without traffic control, from 5 pm to 7 am.

On weekends, Highway 1 will be fully open, without traffic control, from Friday at 5 pm until Monday at 7 am.

This schedule is anticipated to be in effect for at least the next two weeks.

Crews with specialized equipment will be on site to remove remaining slide material from above the roadway. These weekday, one-hour traffic delays, are necessary for crews and equipment to dedicate the maximum amount of daylight hours to these efforts in advance of future weather events.

Message and directional signs will be in place to alert travelers in the area.
