Was going to spend the week at Pfeiffer Big Sur Campground with the kids the first week of April. This happened maybe ~1hr south of the campground. Now I gotta drive up the 101 to Monterey and go back down south. Add 1-2hrs to the trip. No big deal, but not as pretty of a drive.

now that i'm looking at it, probably faster not taking PCH all the way up...but still. Not as fun of a drive.

that's some interesting engineering they did to rebuild after that big slum :cool:

i wonder how many big storms that rip rap at the base will stand up to before it starts to undercut

I think they built this thing to keep another portion of the cliff side from coming down...or at least keep boulders from coming off into the road?

I’m not an engineer, but it seems like the damage from today’s accident would involve more complicated retrofitting than the one a few years ago.

Scoop it out put a bridge there

That's a bigger ravine now and it'll flash flood again

Yes, scoop is a technical term, just ask @Remy Bressant
