Damaged Stretch of PCH Reopens Months After Mudslide

A mudslide-damaged stretch of Pacific Coast Highway closed for almost three months reopened Friday, freeing up drivers heading to and from Los Angeles along its northern coast.

The last part of the highway that remained closed was between Sycamore Cove and Yerba Buena Road, reopened about 3 p.m., Caltrans officials said. Nine miles of PCH were swamped with mud and rocks in late November storm.

Six miles between Las Posas Road and Sycamore Cove reopened on Feb. 3, but the three miles from Sycamore to Yerba Buena remained blocked.
