Road closures

We're heading to California on March 30 for 15 nights, had a plan and just noticed highway 1 closure so looking for some advice please. Our itinerary is currently: Santa Monica 3 nights, San Diego 3 nights (had been Hollywood hills but we swapped), Cambria 2 nights, Monterey 2 nights, Yosemite 2 nights and San Fran 3 nights.

So, would it be best to lose Cambria (although think it may be a long drive San Diego to Monterey) or stop somewhere else, or stay in Cambria but look at driving the alternative route? Thanks for your help.

Kaushik G, welcome to the forums. You would better off asking your own question.

Whatever you decide Carmel to LA in one day isn't a good idea if you want to spend any time on Highway 1. Stop someplace like Pismo or even Santa Barbara.

"...I want to see Big Sur beauty, not fond of castle but mcway fall etc. was on my plan"...

McWay Falls might be accessible coming from the south, but definitely NOT from the north. At this point, we don't know when the southern closure will end and your plan, as it is now, won't allow time for that kind of detour.

If you can only devote one night to the SF to LA drive, you really should look further south than Carmel. SF to Carmel is less than a 3 hour drive. Carmel to LA even by quicker Highway 101 is almost 6 hours.
