BIG SUR, Calif. (KRON) — Highway 1 experienced closures this weekend due to rockslides, but a portion of the roadway has been reopened, according to CalTrans District 5.
Monday morning, CalTrans announced that only a two-mile stretch of Hwy-1 is still closed from the south end of Big Creek Vista Point to the north end of Dolan Point. A full reopening of the roadway is expected by end of day Monday, according to CalTrans.
On Saturday morning, CalTrans announced that Hwy-1 would be closed from Ragged Point to the Big Sur area because of a rockslide. The agency anticipated the highway would be reopened by Sunday morning.
Hwy-1 has since reopened between Carmel and Big Sur. The highway will remain closed from Ragged Point to just south of Big Sure as geo-tech engineers assess the damage before cleanup can begin.
