3) At Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6), we now have a temporary stop sign and one lane accessible to locals only.
4) At Big Creek/Cow Cliffs (28.09/28.35) we have a hard closure due to damaged rock netting and exposed rock fall.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Our Maintenance, Geotech and Construction crews continue to work collaboratively and diligently, as much as safely possible in response to these rock/mudslides.

  1. Wow, Mud Creek road shift rupture is really serious. I hope they can fix it before it gets super dangerous or a sinkhole developes.

  4. Yup, it has, Mike. You remember the story of how your dad came to name it Paul’s slide? Don’t tell publicly.

  5. All that heavy equipment at Mud Creek is bound to make it fall! I remember being at Gorda just on the north end of the town where the driveway up to the cabins is and jumping up and down on the road to make it fall! I was just having fun and then Mother Nature had her fun, as that night the road did fall and created a 15′ (?) separation in the road taking the mail boxes down the hill with it (they were on the north end in those days).

  6. LOL. I remember, all but the jumping up and down. Funny.
