A nearly 10-mile stretch of Pacific Coast Highway near the Ventura County line could re-open as early as 6 p.m. Monday.A rockslide closed PCH from Yerba Buena Rd. to Las Posas Rd. on December 19.

Since then, crews have been cleaning up debris and removing loose boulders that could fall on the highway.

Rocks and about 3 feet of mud collected in some spots due to the slide.

Geologists from Caltrans say they need to make sure the hills are stable before re-opening the road.
