Highway 1 Reopens Between Muir and Stinson Beaches
After being closed for almost a year, Highway 1 between Muir Beach and Stinson Beach is now open to one-way traffic, Caltrans officials said January 4, 2018. If you are headed out to Stinson or Muir Beach, take it slow. Not only will there still be workers on the road, but there are still six active projects along that section of the highway, and motorists should anticipate lengthy delays. Caltrans plans to keep signs up with traffic warnings that encourage people to use the Panoramic detour so Highway 1 does not get backed up.
“It will take up to an hour to get through because of the six different stop lights,” said Muir Beach fire Chief Chris Gove. “People will spend a lot of time sitting at lights.”
Extensive storm damage closed that section of Highway 1 in February 2017, and the majority of the remaining projects such as including shoring up retaining walls at several locations will be complete by June 2018. So far $50 million has been spent on the roadway.

There will be flaggers, signalized operations and stepped-up construction zone enforcement throughout the corridor which means long wait times.
