Caltrans is partially reopening a portion of state Highway 1 south of Big Sur Sunday that was shut down by a mudslide Thursday.
A nearly 40-mile stretch of Pacific Coast Highway through the scenic Big Sur region is now cut off after a rock and mud slide blocked access following the collapse of another chunk of highway last week.
A section of Highway 1 in the Big Sur region that was closed last week when a portion of the roadway crumbled into the ocean is expected to remain closed through the middle of April.
Engineers assessing damage to a section of the Pacific Coast Highway that collapsed north of Big Sur said the popular roadway will remain closed for at least a month until temporary repairs are finished.
