FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Highway 1 Closure in Marin County
Marin County– The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has closed a portion of State Highway 1 between Panoramic Highway and Muir Woods Road in Marin County.
Northbound traffic on Highway 1 will be detoured at Panoramic Highway. Travelers heading for Stinson Beach and beyond will stay on Panoramic Highway until they reach Highway 1. Travelers heading for Muir Beach will take Panoramic Highway to Muir Woods Road, and then will head south on Muir Woods Road to Muir Beach. Local businesses in Muir Beach will remain open during the closure.
The recent winter storm has washed away much of the soil beneath a portion of the road, leaving it unsafe for travel. Caltrans crews are currently formulating a repair plan.
