PCH Opens, Closes and Opens Again

Looking north on PCH south of Mugu Rock
Pacific Coast Highway (SR-1) was opened at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, March 2.  

SR-1 was closed after heavy storms caused mud and rock slides that blocked all lanes of the highway at 4:30 a.m. Sunday, March 1. 

The highway was cleared of mud and debris by 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 1, but due to heavy rains and a possible flash flood according to the National Weather Service, SR-1 remained closed.
