Update:

Highway 1 will be reopened in both directions today at noon according to Caltrans.

The traveling public can expect one-way reversing traffic control over the next several days. The public should also anticipate possible delays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Paul’s Slide for further cleanup.

Original story below:

***

Highway 1 remains closed Monday as of 9 a.m. from south of Deetjen's Inn to Ragged Point on the Big Sur Coast.

Caltrans says Deetjen's Inn is open and that all businesses north of Deetjen's Inn are also open.

***

The closure of Highway 1 in Monterey County was shortened Sunday morning to include Ragged Point to the south and Deetjen’s Inn to the north.

Caltrans closed the highway Saturday afternoon from Ragged Point to Palo Colorado on the Big Sur Coast as a precaution, saying rain was expected to exceed the debris flow threshold in the Dolan and Colorado Fire burn scar areas.

At 11:15 a.m., Caltrans said crews were on scene removing rocks and debris from the highway and engineers were assessing conditions within the closure area.

It’s not yet known when the highway will reopen.

It's the second closure of this area of the highway in the last week due to storms.
