Looks like we have several little slides that are causing Highway 1 to be
unsafe. The highway was closed at about 9:30 PM, Friday, January 23. The
closures are at Mile Marker 12 in the south and at Mile Marker 43 to the
north. That places the closures at about Willow Creek on the southern
end and at Fullers on the north (Coast Gallery area).

CHP website has rockslides at MM9, MM21, MM35, Torrey Canyon Bridge.

Caltrans will be out at first light to start clearing the roadway. You may
