This after they rerouted Highway 1 traffic on San Pedro Ave on Friday, June 20th. Otherwise, that DUI driver would not have been on that road and may have maybe just injured or killed himself on Devil's Slide. The construction on Highway 1, south of Linda Mar Blvd will take a year to complete as they raise the highway bridge over the creek. San Pedro Ave., where traffic has been rerouted, has become more dangerous for pedestrians in some areas. Some tweaks are needed to make this temporary detour visible.
