Highway 1 repair crews find body in Monterey County


Workers repairing a washed-out stretch of Highway 1 in Monterey County discovered a dead body near their construction site Wednesday morning.

At about 10 a.m., workers found the body of a deceased female in the Rat Creek area, according to Caltrans. Investigators believe the body had been at the location for a while.

Officials temporarily halted repairs to Highway 1 after the discovery of the body. The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation into the person’s death.

The stretch of highway was washed away during a storm in January that occurred after the Dolan Fire scorched the area.
