  1. A huge blow to the highway. Sigh. I will be very interested to read the engineers report.

  2. Too bad the businesses don’t have insurance for this sort of thing. Would be nice if they didn’t have to put their employees and guests at risk.

  3. There would be a great deal of confusion on the Big Sur Coast without this BSK blog. With conditions changing so rapidly on Hwy 1, people wouldn’t know what to expect, coming and going- or if they could.
    Good work, Kate.

  5. I’m a cyclist and would like to ride southwards beyond the bridge. If I sling my bike over my shoulder, is there any way of getting southwards beyond the pfeiffer Cynthia bridge?

  6. At this point, no, there is not. But even if you could get past the fallen bridge, there are two other spots – Paul’s Slide and Mud Creek – which you could not get through, even on a bicycle, as they are closed to all for at least April and May. I suggest you go inland.
