Devil’s Slide to be closed for four hours, Wednesday

Posted by on Wed, March 24, 2010

Caltrans will close Highway 1 in both directions near Devils Slide this coming Wednesday, March 24.

The highway will be closed from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm, between the intersection of Linda Mar Boulevard in Pacifica and Montara.

Recent rockslides along the highway near the new Devils Slide Tunnel bridges created a need to close the highway while Caltrans stabilizes the hillside. Caltrans will take advantage of the closure to perform a number of tasks, including drain clearing, weed abatement, litter removal, and more.

Thanks for the heads-up regarding Devil’s Slide! It would have be a really big problem for me. “Crisis averted.” Glad I’m on your list!

Katy you can sign up for San Mateo County agency alerts by email and/or phone text, they will inform you of closures to roads/service, and a whole host of alerts/statuses for your use. You can choose for what areas (Montara, Moss Beach, HMB) and then specify tertiary things like schools, weather, etc… for those areas.

Their website to enroll is here :
