Highway 1 Detour North of Jenner Update

The slide that occurred 10 days ago still has not be repaired. CalTrans says that Hwy 1 will remain closed indefinitely. There is a detour around the slide on Meyers Grade Road and Fort Ross Road. The detour is about 6 miles in length and adds about 10 minutes to the travel time for that section of the highway.

We travel that road several times a year and we often deliberately take this detour, either Meyers Grade Road to Fort Ross Road or to Timber Cover Road. We do this especially if it is foggy, as the stretch being closed is pretty cliff hanging. (thus the history of slides).

Is Fort Ross not accessible due to this closure? I had it on my list of places to visit for this coming Thursday (12/27).

Looks like you can get there by the detour. Worth checking though.

Any of the regulars here know the number to call for road conditions in Cali?

It looks like they might have re-opened it today? (one lane only) Any locals that can confirm?

OP says Fort Ross Road is part of the detour. This comes into Meyers Grade and is above any slide activity, so I assume you can take Fort Ross Road, down to (yes) Fort Ross.

It's a day to day situation. Check the Caltrans site before you drive Highway 1. There were a couple of closures due to storm activity earlier today and there might be some tomorrow due to the storm coming in. But, by Thursday, it could be alright.
