Default Alpine Tunnel closed

Has anybody else heard about this yet? Apparently a rock slide by the palisades has destroyed the road. Might be a long time before it ever opens again...

Yeah we biked past there last year, it slid in a spot and you can't drive to the alpine tunnel anymore. "they" were talking about fixing it, but it'd be a project. the wall part kinda gave way in a spot.
