Highway 1 is open during the day to Hearst Castle. However, between the towns of Gorda and Ragged Point, Highway 1 is not open due to roadwork Sunday nights through Friday mornings (from 10pm to 7am). Motorists may encounter one-way traffic controls in these areas even when full closures are not in effect. For more information on Highway 1 conditions please visit www.dot.ca.gov/dist05/road_information.htm
