Highway 1 through Big Sur reopens to night traffic

Highway 1 at the south end of Big Sur will be open overnight, Caltrans announced Thursday. Crews are still working to clear a rockslide that blocked the highway March 5 at Alder Creek, south of Gorda.

The road had been closed from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Traffic is controlled by signal lights and stop signs at three spots in the Lucia area where only one traffic lane is available due to roadwork.
