UPDATE2: The road is open to emergency vehicles only at this point. The earlier report was misunderstood.
UPDATE:Fortuna dispatch has reported that Briceland Rd is open to one way traffic–Thank the Humboldt Co. road workers!
Many thanks to the crew who are working in cold, wet, dangerous conditions so that the road will be opened. Kim Sallaway commented on the last post just recently, “The roadway is being worked on with the hopes that by Monday the traffic can use it, one way, controlled. The crew worked until 11:30 last night and started up again at 7AM. They dumped more than 40 20 yard dump trucks worth of rip-rap into the hillside yesterday. They have done more than 15 today by 10:30 AM. They have a steady flow of big serpentine rocks coming from Bear Butte. According to the job supervisor, I can’t recollect his name, the plan is to work until it is done. And he hopes that will be tonight. This incessant rain makes the going uncomfortable for the working men, but they seem to be getting it done.
The road will be one lane.”
