Highway One Storm Repair near Piedras Blancas
Went thru this just after the storm, and waves were WAY up over the road. Had to time my travel across.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HIGHWAY 1 REPAIRS NEAR PIEDERAS BLANCAS NOW UNDERWAY
SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY – An emergency project to repair storm-damaged sections of Highway 1 north of the Piedras Blancas lighthouse is now underway.
Motorists will encounter one-way reversing traffic control Monday through Friday from 7 am until 4 pm. Moderate delays of 10-15 minutes are expected.
These repairs to the rock slope and highway are necessary at six locations within the project limits due to erosion of the bluffs as a result of the recent wave surge onto the shoreline and the highway.
Electronic message boards will be activated to inform motorists of this project. The contractor for this $500,000 project is Papich Construction of Pismo Beach, CA. This project is expected to be completed by the end of the year, weather permitting.
