Caltrans is closing Highway 1 at Mud Creek and Paul’s Slide in the Big Sur area at noon on Monday, Jan. 14.
The department of transportation confirmed the closure Sunday afternoon.
The gates on each side of Mud Creek and Paul’s Slide will be closed and locked so no car has access to the area.
Caltrans said the closure is due to a significant storm in the forecast this week.
They said units will be on call, prepared to inspect and clean up during the day when the storm ends and when it is safe to be in the area.
A final notice will be sent out just before the road closes.
