[UPDATE: 11:10 p.m.] Video of Slide Blocking Hwy 101 North of Leggett
To help you get a better idea of the slide, a reader sent in the following video which was taken about 8:30 p.m. when a few cars were let through.
According to the reader,
We were heading southbound and were stopped under a quarter mile from the slide location, about the 15th car in line at 8pm. At this point there wasn’t any chp turning vehicles around yet.
We waited about 20 minutes before we saw just 4 cars pass through northbound. Then southbound cars started to move through but we’re stopped again when a big rig heading south had to turn around in the road because it wouldn’t be able to pass through (which you will learn why in the video – a tractor looked to have broken down in the roadway). After the big rig turned around to head back north we proceeded through the slide.
Here’s a portion of the slide coming down at 6:16 p.m. that another reader, Erin Bear, sent in.
UPDATE at 7:52 a.m.: 101 is still closed. Here’s a list of options: 101 Closed North of Piercy; What Are the Options?
UPDATE 12:42 p.m. Friday: Good News! Traffic is Traveling Through the Hwy 101 Closure
