Another Massive Landslide Cuts Off California Highway to Big Sur

With Memorial Day Weekend coming up, the Big Sur area would normally be a popular tourist destination. But another massive landslide hit Highway 1 this past weekend, cutting off access even more.

Video shows a quarter of a mile of hillside give way, unleashing one million tons of rock and dirt — most of it dropping 250 feet into the ocean. The rest buried a quarter mile of Highway 1 in debris.

Luckily, no one was hurt. Crews and equipment pulled out one week ago.

A Caltrans picture taken from one end of the slide shows engineers just starting to assess the damage. They expect the repairs will take months, if not longer.
