Original story:

Highway 41 in Atascadero is closed at San Gabriel Road because of a rock slide just east of the Three Bridges Oak Preserve area, according to the Atascadero Police Department.

The closure was first reported at about 10:12 a.m. on the California Highway Patrol’s website. Highway 41 between Atascadero and Morro Bay reopened Feb. 11 after mudslides closed the highway for more than a month.

The magnitude of the slide and the estimated time it will take to clear are currently unknown.
