Hwy 1 at Alder Creek to remain closed for 4 to 6 weeks

Caltrans says it now expects Highway 1 near Alder Creek to remain closed for at least four to six more weeks.

That portion of the roadway was shut down earlier this week after a rockslide in the area. Caltrans says its officials met with the California Coastal Commission and the Monterey National Marine Sanctuary Friday and developed a plan to clear that section of the roadway with minimal impact to the environment.

Caltrans says it has a contractor set up to be in charge of clearing that portion of Highway 1. The company will be getting its equipment ready to begin removing debris early next week.

Caltrans says anyone traveling to Big Sur from the south can take Highway 101 to the Monterey area, and then proceed west on Highway 68, then south on Highway 1 to reach Big Sur.
