Ca. state 1 coastal road closure
« on: April 27, 2011, 01:25:38 pm »
Can anyone update me on the landslide south of Gordo that has closed the hwy? Can bikes make it through or do we need to go all the way around Lake Nacimiento to Cambria?

I checked online and it sounds like it'll be 4-6 weeks before the road is open again. Here are several sites to refer to:

Still closed, as of yesterday they are still saying 4-8 weeks.  My June crossing is looking iffy.  Some anecdotal info about locals walking along the "beach" to get around.  Not sure how reliable that is (or will be).

These blogs seem to be keeping a  very close eye on the situation:
