    Caltrans has received confirmation from National Weather Service (NWS) data that a significant storm will continue in the areas of Mud Creek (PM 8.9) and Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6) on State Route 1 in the Big Sur area over the next 24 hours. The previously announced hwy closure will continue today between Ragged Point (SLO PM 72.87) to Gorda (MON PM 10.12). The Highway 1 closure, for traveler safety, will include the areas of Mud Creek and Paul’s Slide and will remain closed today, Monday, Feb. 4 until further notice. SEE ATTACHED CLOSURE MAP.
    Storm activity is currently forecast through Tue., Feb. 5.
    Businesses along the Big Sur Coast on Hwy. 1 remain open and are accessible via Highways 101, 68 and 46.

    Caltrans’ Geotech, Maintenance and Construction units are on call and prepared to inspect/clean up when the storm ends during the daylight hours and it is safe to be onsite again—we currently anticipate this to be Tuesday, Feb. 5th. Caltrans’ goal is to open the roadway as quickly and safely as possible and our staff remains on-call 24/7.
    The gates on either side of Mud Creek and Paul’s Slide will be key locked. These gates will not be manned when the highway is closed and there will be no access to anyone, including Emergency Services or Caltrans employees until a proper assessment can be made and any necessary cleanup has been completed.
    An update will be provided Tue., Feb. 5 during the afternoon hours or sooner.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
