Hwy 1 Closed Due to Rockslides Along Big Sur Coast

Caltrans District 5

Fallen rocks and debris have once again closed state Highway 1 along the Big Sur coast, Caltrans officials said Sunday morning.

A 45-mile stretch of the highway is closed between Ragged Point in San Luis Obispo County and near Deetjen's Big Sur Inn in Monterey County while crews remove rocks covering the road.

There is no estimated time for reopening the road, according to an advisory from Caltrans at 8:15 a.m.

Barricades, cones, and directional signs will be in place at both ends of the closure to alert motorists.

Last week, Caltrans closed the highway in the same area on Wednesday night for about 12 hours due to a rockslide.
