Hwy 101 is open! The first few cars headed south through the slide area today at 12:17 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol Incident Information Page. The major north south route closed after boulders rolled off the hillside into the roadway yesterday evening.

The closure caused missed appointments, dangerous detours, closed one school, and frustrated drivers.

According to the California Highway Patrol Incident Information Page, one lane is open now but expect delays of 20 to 30 minutes. “The road will remain one-way until further notice,” according to Phil Frisbie, Jr. Caltrans Chief of Public Information.
