State Route 1 in Monterey County remains
closed from north of Salmon Creek, just south of the
Ranger Station (PM 3) to just south of Gorda (PM 10) due
to the Mud Creek slide. State Route 1 south of Salmon
Creek is accessible via State Route 1 in San Luis Obispo

Mud Creek had a major slide on
Saturday, May 20, 2017, losing over 5 million cubic yards of
material. Caltrans continues with its plan to realign the
existing terrain with the projected timeline to safely open
to public traffic is late-summer 2018 at an estimated cost
of $40 million.
