Northbound Highway 1 in Santa Cruz has fully reopened as of 5 a.m. Tuesday.

Travelers will encounter a continuing closure of the Ocean St. onramp to northbound Highway 1 according to Caltrans officials. This closure is expected to remain in effect over the next several days.

A full closure of Highway 1 was in effect since Saturday from Ragged Point in San Luis Obispo County to 2.5 miles south of Big Sur in Monterey County because of rockslides at multiple locations.

Crews worked to remove trees and other materials that Caltrans said accumulated against the Highway 1 bridge where it crosses the San Lorenzo River.
