Caltrans continues to work on clearing Highway 1 on the south end of Big Sur, but has no new estimated time of reopening the highway, the agency announced Friday.
Officials said they may be able to say this afternoon when one lane of the road near Limekiln State Park will reopen.
Highway 1 between Cambria and Carmel is closed in two areas, because of a mudslide early Thursday about 25 miles south of Big Sur, and the collapse of the roadway on March 16 at Palo Colorado Road north of Big Sur.
Caltrans hopes to be able to reopen the northern end by April 16.
For now, a 40-mile stretch of highway remains cut off from outside access.
Businesses on either side of the closures remain open, as does Hearst Castle.

Community members interested in management of the Santa Rosa Creek watershed — one of two water sources for Cambria — are invited to attend a meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday where a voluntary watershed management plan will be presented.
Greenspace — The Cambria Land Trust is hosting the public gathering at Rabobank, 1070 Main St., Cambria.
Information gleaned from stakeholders and members of the public at previous meetings is included in the plan, according to a statement issued by Greenspace.
Some of that data has been used to identify and recommend restoration priorities in the plan, especially factors limiting populations of steelhead trout.
Stillwater Sciences of Berkeley also provided details for the plan, including information reviewed by a technical advisory committee.
Partners in preparing the plan and informing the public about it are Greenspace and Central Coast Salmon Enhancement of Arroyo Grande.
The plan was funded by a California Department of Fish and Game Fisheries Restoration grant.
