Title: Big landslide on PCH near Big Sur
Post by: staehpj1 on January 30, 2021, 05:45:10 pm
I'd imagine we'll be hearing more about this from the ACA as details shake out.  It will likely have a major impact on anyone ricing the PCH in the near future.  It looks like something that won't be quickly repaired.  Reports put it at or near Rat Creek.

I used to live in Pacifica and the day we were to move out the road dropped into the ocean and we had to delay a day. 39 years later and landslides are still an issue in that area. Just before we moved in a family was killed when they house was taken out by a landslide.

If you look in the Forums under the "Temporary ACA Route Road Closures" discussion you will see a detour posted. As we learn more, the detour might be modified, so please check this location before you begin your tour.

If you haven't seen the news release, CALTRANS has decided to bridge the washout gap at Ratt Creek by filling in the wash away rather than constructing a bridge.

Work commenced MAR 1st and will continue until completion, estimated to be early summer. Cost of $13M.

Good news for those interested in the Pacific Coast in the late summer/fall.

Bad news for the local PCH residents who bemoan the non-stop traffic and have taken advantage of the closure to sit in the middle of the highway at sunset with a picnic basket and bottle of wine.  8)
