Huge Chunk of Big Sur’s Highway 1 Falls Into Ocean
Sadly, a massive chunk of Highway 1 fell into the ocean during this week’s stormy weather.
California Highway Patrol noted that the landslide occurred near Rat Creek, by Mile Marker 30 near the Big Creek Bridge, according to KTVU.
Thankfully, no one was injured as there were no cars on the road at the time. CHP and Caltrans had preemptively closed the road down on Tuesday before the big “Atmospheric River” stormed through California.
Thanks to ABC7 for sharing the fascinating drone footage that’s captured the aftermath of the epic washout.
The road remains closed for repairs. There’s no timeline when it’ll reopen as debris continues to fall down the mountain and washout more of the road.
