SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY, Calif. - Caltrans District 5 released a Sigalert Wednesday morning announcing the closure of Highway 1 on the north end of SLO County into Monterey County due to a rock slide.

The closure began shortly after 8 a.m. and runs from Ragged Point in SLO County to Fullers Point in Monterey County.

Both directions of the highway are closed at this time. Caltrans said Wednesday afternoon that the highway may not reopen for one week while rocks above that stretch of highway are assessed.

Caltrans recommends using Highway 46 West and Highway 101 as detours to go north. Those traveling south may use Highway 68 to Highway 101.
