    If you weren't aware, CalTrans is opening a tunnel this month to bypass Devil's Slide on Highway 1, a fun section of rollercoaster road between Pacifica and Montara/HMB. When the tunnel opens, traffic will be blocked from the old route - forever. So get out there and enjoy one last ride on a wild section of coastal road.
