Note: as of Sunday, 2/19/17 at 12 pm, the road is closed again for clearing of debris until 4 pm.

Detail Information
7:30 AM 2 [6] PER DUPE RP, VEHS ARE TURING AROUND AND DONT KNOW WHERE TO GO
7:14 AM 1 [1] MUD SLIDE 1125 ENTIRE RD / FIRE ENRT

Thanks to the CHP officer who escorted me to the slide to take this photo.  He said that Monterey County Public Works received the call at 7:30 am and they are en route. They are also concerned about the electrical pole in the second photo – condition to be determined by PG&E.  Photos taken at 10 am by lucasryancv.

And, Kate’s internet is still out.  I’ll post updates for her when they become available.

Updated picture of the slide cleared:

  1. Complete with landscaping, trees and shrubs. You’d think that nature has had enough of tourists. I just hope you good people are warm and dry enough to see this latest hit out. I’m sure most of you are used to the unusual and coping just fine, I hope so.

  2. Is there a number to call to find out when it’s cleared? The officer estimated that would be this afternoon but he didn’t have a number.

  12. …Road closure update still doesn’t register latest road hazard… Helicopter flew by our place not caring to take a look at that slide on its way to Big Sur I suppose. OK, that was a quick check, now it’s turned around eyeballing the river and on its way toward Jack’s Peak.

  13. Drove 68 to Salinas yesterday (Monday 3/13)early afternoon. Roadwork appeared to be complete. Traffic flowing both sides of road. There were a bunch of truckers/workers picking up cones, equipment etc. Was an easy drive both directions!!
