A stretch of Highway 1 that was crushed by a massive mudslide in 2017 near Big Sur, Calif., reopened for traffic Wednesday morning.

More than a year after a landslide shut it down, a section of Highway 1 running along a coastal stretch in California’s Big Sur region reopened early Wednesday.

The California Department of Transportation announced that the roadway at Mud Creek was opening about two months ahead of schedule, thanks to favorable weather and worker productivity. Story by Amy Held / www.npr.org
