Highway 1 restoration project halted briefly for holiday traffic
– A project to construct a retaining wall on Highway 1 in northern San Luis Obispo/southern Monterey Counties is underway. It will serve as a permanent restoration effort in this area known for major slides.
This week holes are being drilled to place the metal piles. This phase of the project continues with full overnight closures on Highway 1 from Gorda to Ragged Point which began on Monday night, June 22, tentatively scheduled through the end of November, weather permitting.
Roadwork will take place Sunday nights through Friday mornings from 10 p.m. until 7 a.m., except for Thursday night, July 2. There will not be an overnight closure due to the Fourth of July holiday. The highway will be open to two-way traffic for Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights due to the holiday.
All local businesses along the coast will remain open during the roadwork.
