Highway 1 at Mud Creek will open sooner than expected.  The road just south of Gorda was wiped out by a massive landslide in May of 2017.

Joe Erwin and I stand on land that didn’t exist before the Mud Creek Slide.  The ocean is at our backs.  In front of us, a semi-truck hauling enormous boulders makes its way down an access road carved into this new hillside.

“You know when you first see it you are overwhelmed by how big it is.  And you think what can we possible do,” says Joe Erwin, Project Manager with CalTrans.
