Landside Covers Part of Pacific Coast Highway

By Ginny Harman

A landslide has covered one of the most scenic drives in California.

Pacific Coast Highway in Big Sur has been completely buried with more than 1 million tons of dirt and rock, CBS News reports.

The affected part of PCH was already being refurbished due to having recently buckled because of adverse weather conditions.

“We haven’t been able to go up there and assess. It’s still moving,” Susana Cruz, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Transportation, said. “We have geologists and engineers who are going to check it out this week to see how do we pick up the pieces.”

Officials have closed all access to the area and don’t know when they road will be reopened.
