UPDATE- October 13, 2017

Caltrans today announced that the Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge is open to travel and officially reopened around 1:10 PM. You can now drive about 60 miles south of Carmel on Highway 1. To drive "through" Big Sur Travelers will have to take Nacimiento-Fergusson road detour around mud creek slide, which is scheduled to reopen sometime next summer.

Things To Note:

  • Because of the bridge opening, there is 35 miles of Highway 1 for travelers going to Gorda.
  • State route 1 is still closed from just north of Salmon Creek
  • Be aware that you still cannot go the entire length of highway 1 from near Carmel to South of Cambria but we wanted to make sure you know that local businesses are open to both sides of the Mud Creek.
