California Highway 1 closed again due to mud slide washout

The recent deluge of rains in the state caused highway 1 south of Big Sur to collapse. This is similar to what happened in a different area 3 years ago. That slide cause the road to be closed for over a year.
They will have to span it with a bridge.

That's a great road, sad to see it will be closed for a while again.

News chopper photos show a mess all the way up the hill and down to the water .

Looks like it'll take a bridge to fix that mess , a new culvert isn't going to do the job.

Someone did a drone video of that, I saw tonight. Quite impressive.

How awful. I remember our first trip to California and driving down the PCH from north of San Francisco all the way to San Diego. An amazing trip for this born and raised easterner.

I recall stopping for lunch at Nepenthe for lunch, stopping at the parks and pull offs in Big Sur, touring the Hearst Castle in San Simeon, the Apple Farm and Madonna in San Luis Obispo are all fond memories. We stop a Nepenthe every time we are near Monterey. I know it is way over priced, but the views are worth it.

Not a problem. Not planning on visiting that state any time soon. Saw it plenty when I was younger. Don’t miss it now. Safe travels for those that live in area.

Enjoy the journey

I read elsewhere that the culvert at that point had plugged up allowing the water to run over the roadway and that is what caused it.

Traveled this route as well as 1 North to San Fran. many times in our 34 foot MH.
These 2 routes are 2nd to none period. Now our 45 is too long according to California. If they would lift those restrictions I would do them again in a heartbeat. As for California we left 15 years ago but visit the beautiful coastline and Yosemite quite often. Two places everyone should see at least one time.

Last time this happened it was a matter of finding the part that was open, and enjoying the quiet. Wifey was doing a gig in SLO at the time and we found a way, several ways actually.

Looks like the southern part from Morro Bay to Ragged Point is open, that's a fine trip, possibly the only place on earth where you can see elephant seals and zebras on the same ride. The run from Monterey to Big Sur is beautiful, although I imagine it's gonna be right crowded this summer. Nacimiento-Furgusson road is fantastic if you like getting the bejeebus scared out of you (and I do).

To be clear, I'd be inclined to park the rig in SLO or Paso Robles, or Morro which has a fine RV park, and take the toad or the bike on day trips. Much easier to get turned back around again. And plus there's all them wineries tucked back into the hills that must not be missed, especially Justin, which is to absolutely die for.

Sad the road is closed, but the ocean and the sea otters and the wine and the whales and Monterey and Laguna Seca are still there, I wouldn't stay away just because of some stinkin landslide

Ditto! Close your eyes and the cycle repeats every two to three years. Mudslides, fires, earthquakes - don't miss any of it.

Sad to see. I'm not sure how much longer the road is going to be open. Too much liability when the rain comes in. Most those coastal roads are ticking time bombs. I'm glad I got to see it when I did. As a life long California resident who can't wait to leave this god awful state, the 1 is a pleasant escape from the rest of the state.

According to news last night, the can't decide between fill and culvert or bridge.
They said something about being an underground stream that only overflows
to surface with heavy rains.
