Highway One remains closed 1/10/17

CALTRANS

Good morning everyone,

So the pictures below are from Fernwood (PM 47) and show what we were dealing with yesterday, basically we got enough room open for emergency vehicles to get through. All the trees in the slide damned everything up so we left it and will start removing it today. It was still pretty active dropping a 100 plus yards of material while we were there, so it might be somewhat of a slow process.

As for the update, Hwy. 1 still remains closed from Ragged Pt. (SLO PM 72.87) to Fernwood (MON PM 47.03). Emergency vehicles and locals can get from Treebones (PM 11.11) to Ragged Point…SOUTHBOUND ONLY. Locals in between Fuller’s (PM 42) and Fernwood (PM 47.03) can move between those five miles only. Hotline recording will remain the same. Another update will be provided around noontime today.

  1. Yes, perfect – emergency vehicles can get through and the kids to and from school. But Sacred Highway One deserves a respite from the hordes and a temporary return to the quiet days that once were the norm…

  3. A friend just came up Clear Ridge Road and said the River Inn entrance is passable but very muddy. He said there are lots of cars on CR Road…

  4. Pacific Valley School students are able to make it from Lucia and Gorda Mtn. So, Paul’s slide is passable and should be approached with care…as all of Hwy 1 should be handled during these rains especially.
