It's highway 1 right near where they had some fires earlier in the year, they'll have it opened by next week....

 

Ok just saw an aerial photo, maybe 2 weeks :)

Looking at the closure on the map, it looks like a lot of the same area that was previously closed for a year or two after the last big slide.  Hopefully a lot of the resources used for that repair are still handy.

Same general area, totally different situation. Previous one was massive landslide coupled with a bridge that was damaged and had to be replaced.

What’s the fix for that? :dontknow: Do they fill (seems almost impossible) and replace the road where it sat, or do they just cut another path more inland and avoid the slide area...

I assume they will cut a "bench" below once the soil dries and then build up a new section of cliff. We actually had a similar slide (smaller) on my local road and that is the technique they used in that situation.

Temperatures around Hwy 101 in July will be a little over 100. Along the coast they'll probably be in the mid 60s.

I would think letting nature take it's course and allow the 'gully' to form.   Put in a bridge to span the natural cut.  Bridges are spensive, but then so is repeated repair of highway.

On the bright side, if it's not open in time for the UN, that should cut way down on the traffic on CA-1 if you want to ride it as an out-and-back (and you should!).
