The bad news, according to a special report published in the Monterey County Weekly, is that Highway 1 south of Monterey is about to be closed. The good news is that the report was published on April 1.

The elaborate April Fool’s Day joke, which clocks in at around 3,000 words, is worth reading even knowing it's a ruse. In addition to being seriously funny, it lays out the many problems Big Sur has been experiencing over the past several years, as it has become “overtouristed.”
