UPDATE: It's fixed! Thanks to everyone who contacted Google Maps about this issue. Google Maps is still showing that Highway One is closed between Monterey and Big Sur. It's open, as previously reported and as you can see in this video: The more people tell them it's wrong, the faster it will be fixed!
  • Go to http://maps.google.com/
  • In the “Search Maps” field, type “Monterey, CA to Big Sur, CA” and hit “Enter.”
  • You will see a map directing users to drive from Monterey through Salinas, down Highway 101 to Nacimiento Fergusson Road to Big Sur. (If Google Maps shows the direct route on Highway One from Monterey to Big Sur, no further action needs to be taken!)
  • In the lower right hand corner of the map, click on the “Report a Problem” link.
  • Under number 2, select “Driving Directions.”
  • Click “Continue.”
  • Under “Tell us about the problem,” select “Other.”
  • In the Comments section, tell them to fix it. Here's a sample of what you could write: “These directions send users on an indirect route that is not recommended. Directions should send users on Highway One straight from Monterey to Big Sur. Highway One has been open between Monterey and Big Sur since April.” You can add a link such as http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/roadinfo/sr1 with more information.
  • Click “Continue.”
  • Let us know you did it - and tell your friends!
Thanks to everyone who takes three minutes! We'll let you know when it's fixed!
