Devil’s Slide One-Way Traffic Controls Scheduled For Tonight

Caltrans will conduct additional preventive maintenance on a portion of Highway 1 near Devil’s Slide due to this week’s rain storms.

One-way traffic controls will be in effect on Highway 1 between Linda Mar Boulevard in Pacific and the North Portal bridge area of Devil’s Slide beginning tonight, Monday, Dec. 17 at 7 p.m. and should be completed by approximately 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 18 

Caltrans is conducting additional preventive maintenance on a portion of Highway 1/Cabrillo Highway near Devil’s Slide in San Mateo County due to this week’s rain storms.

The work is needed to prevent further erosion before the next rain storms arrive. This work is to continue the erosion prevention work crews completed on December 4. Crews will be placing plastic sheets, wire-mesh, and anchors to temporarily cover the embankment slope just slightly south of last week’s work site.

During one-way traffic controls, one lane of traffic will remain open at all times with flaggers alternating northbound and southbound traffic. All work is weather permitting.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) will help direct motorists. Caltrans will also install changeable message signs. Motorists should allow for extra travel time.                        
Additional project information is posted on the Caltrans’ Highway 1-Devil’s Slide webpage at: http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist4/dslide/

Sorry if this a known to everyone else but me question, but when does the tunnel open? I live in Santa Cruz County and occasionally come up the coast to visit my folks off Sharp Park - (guess I'll take 17 to 280 for Christmas)

Coastside residents won't be getting the $342 million Devil's Slide tunnel as a holiday present this year. The Devil's Slide tunnels completion has been delayed once again until early 2013. You can still get to Pacifica from Santa Cruz along Highway 1 but check the traffic report before heading out b/c accidents or inclement weather can close the road for periods of time. Here's some info. that may help http://patch.com/A-zzVf. Also, Patch will update the story once we found out more.
