California Highway 1 along Big Sur to reopen by April 30, Caltrans says

KTLA

The scenic highway snaking through California’s rugged coastal cliffs has been closed since Jan. 28, when heavy rain triggered a landslide that carried a chunk of roadway into the sea. The washout left a 150-foot (46-meter) gap along the picturesque driving route.

“Reopening Highway 1 at Rat Creek just three months after a washout of this magnitude is great news for residents, recreationalists, business owners, and those who move goods through this region,” Caltrans Director Toks Omishakin said in a statement. “Caltrans has been focused on the emergency work needed to increase the resiliency of this highway section to extreme weather, and the fixes made will allow for safe travel.”

Good news, open for summer.

1. I would ponder taking hwy 101 until getting beyond this point to get back on hwy 1.

That is the second time there was a problem in this area on a cliff road.
