[Note: To be clear, all of Devil’s Slide will be closed, from Linda Mar in Pacifica to La Costanera in Montara. The press release refers to the “Chart House” which used to occupy the location of the Peruvian restaurant La Costanera.]
Pacifica – Caltrans will close a portion of State Highway 1 in both
directions near Devils Slide this coming Wednesday, March 24, 2010.
The highway will close from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm, between the
intersection of Linda Mar Boulevard in Pacifica to the Chart House near
Gray Whale Cove.
The closure is necessary due to several recent rockslides along the highway
in the vicinity of the new Devils Slide Tunnel bridges. For safety
reasons, the highway must remain fully closed while Caltrans workers
stabilize the hillside. In addition, other Caltrans maintenance workers
will take advantage of the closure to perform a number of tasks, including
drain clearing, weed abatement, litter removal, and others.
Drivers approaching from the south are advised to take Highway 92 east,
then I-280 north, then Highway 35 north, and then turn left on Sharp Park
Road. Drivers approaching from Pacifica are advised to go north to Sharp
Park Road, turn left, then take Highway 35 south, to I-280 south, and to
Highway 92 west.
