Mudslide, downed trees close Highway 41 in Atascadero

March 15, 2023


Highway 41 remains closed in both directions from San Gabriel Road to Los Altos Road in Atascadero because of slide activity, downed trees and electric wires.

The section of road closed during the atmospheric river storm on Tuesday afternoon. It is expected to be a long-term closure, according to Caltrans.

Travelers can take Highway 46 or Highway 1 as alternate routes.

Caltrans’ geotechnical team is working to determine the next steps.
