[UPDATE 11:55 a.m.] 101 Closed; Traffic Diverted to Route 271
A slide covered all four lanes of Hwy 101 between Cooks Valley and Piercy early this morning. Fortunately, Caltrans has Hwy 271 to route traffic around the slide. Plan a little extra time into your commute.
According to the California Highway Patrol Incident page, the slide is not expected to be cleared until around 2 p.m. today.
However, Caltrans reports, “Crews have been working through the night to clean up the debris, but there is no estimated time for reopening. Travelers should expect the detour to add a minor amount of time to their trip.”
UPDATE 10:33 a.m.: Talia Rose from County Line Wild sends us these photos of the slide.
