Press release from Caltrans:

In anticipation of heavy Memorial Day weekend traffic volumes, Caltrans will be supplementing the temporary traffic signal just south of Standish-Hickey State Park on U.S. Highway 101 in Mendocino County with traffic control personnel.

The work taking place near Standish-Hickey State Park is being done to repair damage caused by slide activity in the area. Most of this damage is difficult or impossible to see from the roadway. Caltrans and our partners at Danielson Construction are working to install a soldier-pile retaining wall with tiebacks and rebuild the roadway and shoulders at this location over the summer.

Caltrans normally suspends all roadwork during Memorial Day weekend to reduce impacts to those traveling our highways, but due to the nature of the work at this location, work will continue through the holiday weekend. Flaggers will be present on the highway this weekend to reduce congestion and react to changing traffic patterns.
We ask that motorists anticipate short delays on U.S. Highway 101 just south of Standish-Hickey State Park in Mendocino County during the Memorial Day weekend, and to allow extra time to reach your destinations safely.

We thank you for your patience and understanding, and we wish you a safe and meaningful Memorial Day weekend.
