BIG SUR, Cali. (KRON) — A massive section of coastal Highway 1 in California fell into the Pacific Ocean after storms rocked Northern California Thursday.

Caltrans crews responded to a segment of road that collapsed near Mile Marker 30 near Big Creek Bridge in Big Sur and closed the highway indefinitely.

Last time a significant portion of Highway 1 was damaged was back in 2017 when the steep slopes at Mud Creek suffered a catastrophic collapse, wiping out the highway for months.
