Road to Big Sur Reopens ... from Carmel to Cambria
Highway 1 between Cambria and Carmel reopened on June 10 for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists for the first time since mid-March.
A series of landslides and a roadway slip-away had kept the All-American Byway closed at one spot or another since March 16, stranding visitors, residents and workers on two long cul-de-sacs for which the impassible mid-point kept switching locations.
Some slow-down areas remain along the 100-mile stretch of scenic highway, including at Rocky Creek at the north end of Big Sur, with a stoplight reversing one-way traffic. That was where part of the highway literally vanished into the sea, and permanent repairs there will be under way for some time.
