New Slide at Hurricane?
1:34 PM 3  LOCALS ALLOWED THRU F/PALO COLORADO TO PFEIFFER BRIDGE / UNESCORTED DURING DAYLIGHT HRS / MUST USE CAUTION / AND YIELD TO ANY CALTRANS EQUIP AND PERSONNEL
This is actually before (or north) of the “u” turn over the Little Sur River, and after Hurricane Point, but closer to the Little Sur. this is posted on CHP website:
10:45 AM 2  CT DIST 5 HAS BEEN NOTIFIED OF NEW SLIDE NEAR MPM 57.59 – RDWY IS STARTING TO GIVE WAY W/CRACKS 1-2FT DEEP AND 1-1/5FT WIDE
10:43 AM 1  SR1 IN BIG SUR IS CLOSED F/ PALO COLORADO (MPM 61) DOWN TO THE MTY/SLO COUNTY LINE
Not good. Not good at all. And the OCR is a friggin’ river, so that’s a no-go. I posted these 3 days ago. These are the photos of where the OCR was…
Here are a few photos taken by the CHP last night of the problem
9:20 am -From a friend:
“Good morning! A Big Sur neighbor just called me from town to say that he was turned back at Palo Colorado in the last 30 minutes because there is a slide blocking both lanes near Hurricane Point. I called My 911 communications desk who said they didn’t know of any current slides but had a report of a slide near MM57 very early this morning. there is no word on CHP traffic site about this new closure. Thought I’d pass it on.”
I have not been able to confirm this through CHP or other, at this point. Will update when I know.
