Highway Closure Update, 2/9/17

Video and photo of Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6) , Big Creek (PM 28.09) , Limekiln Park (PM 21) and Rain Rocks (PM 21.3) from yesterday

The slides continue from Deetjen’s (PM 43.17) to Mud Creek (PM 8.8), but the northern closure has now moved south to Fullers/Grimes Cyn (PM 42)…Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6) is by far one of the worst slides at this time, video included from yesterday.

The inclement weather continues to give us more slides at multiple locations, the largest challenges being at: Mud Creek (PM 8.8), Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6), Big Creek (PM 28.09), Cow Cliffs (PM 28.35) and Deetjen’s (PM 43.17), require closure to rbe at Fullers/Grimes Cyn (PM 42) until further notice.

***NEW INFORMATION ***

State Route 1 is now closed between Ragged Pt. (SLO 72.87) and Fuller’s/Grimes Cyn. (Mon 42). Another storm is expected this afternoon, Thursday, Feb. 9.
 Motorists may travel north on State Route 1 from Cambria to Ragged Point (SLO PM 72.87) or south from Carmel to Fuller’s/Grimes Cyn. (PM 42).

The roadway is not passable between Ragged Pt (SLO 72.87)and Fuller’s/Grimes Cyn. (PM 42)

*LOCALS MAY TRAVEL NORTH, CAREFULLY, FROM RAGGED PT. TO LIMEKILN, AND SOUTH FROM FULLER’S TO DOLAN PT. (PM 29.70) AS THERE ARE SEVERAL LOCATIONS WITH ONLY ONE LANE OPEN DUE TO ROCK/MUDSLIDES.

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.

  2. That’s the first pass by the plow trucks, second or third pass they all get pushed to the side.

  3. Do these trucks have ground penetrating radar sensors that maps activity below the surface?

  4. Not the normal Cal Trans vehicles, no. Whether there is such a critter – I do not know.

  5. Thanks. That’s what I first thought but the “cleanliness” left and right threw me. Takes some real skill to get that blade that close, but then, they’ve had lots of practice lately, with even more opportunities to perfect their techniques ahead.
    Stay safe.
