Earth shift blocks 'prettiest highway America'

san luis obispo - Thanks to its breathtaking views, it is a regular part of many traveling through the west of the United States, a ride on Highway 1 between San Francisco and Los Angeles. A landslide recently destroyed a part of the iconic highway.

A ten-meter thick layer of stones and mud is on the road at Mud Creek, about 13 kilometers from San Luis Obispo. In total, about one million tons of debris destroyed the ocean.

The road has been closed in both directions for the time being, so who wants to cruise this summer along the coast will have to invent an alternative. The work may take months.

In this area more of this kind of landslides occur more often.
