Rockslide closes 40-mile stretch of Highway 1 near Big Sur



A rockslide over the weekend left a 40-mile stretch of California’s Freeway 1 shut down Monday as authorities assess harm finished to the highway.

The portion of the freeway closed ranges from Ragged Level to only south of Large Sur, in accordance with Caltrans, although the highway is open between Carmel and Large Sur.

Giant and small rocks tumbled down the facet of a mountain and thru a web meant to catch them onto the freeway, in accordance with images launched by Caltrans. There have been “dozens of areas of concern” when Caltrans assessed the harm Sunday and that geotechnical engineers will return Monday to examine, Caltrans mentioned in a launch.

The slides ranged from small rocks within the roadway to probably the most severe incident close to Cow Cliffs, the place a big rock “breached the containment space.”

“The rockslide isn’t important in dimension with the closure in place to take care of security and as a result of changeable situations,” Caltrans tweeted on Saturday.

The slide got here because the Bay Space was pounded by rain Saturday, with the Nationwide Climate Service saying that rainfall was heaviest alongside Freeway 1 close to Large Sur, the place it exceeded 5 inches in greater areas.
