Expect 25 Minute Delays on Hwy 101 at Last Chance Grade
According to Caltrans,
We’re continuing to shore up the hillside at the site of a recent slide on U.S. Highway 101 at Last Chance Grade, just south of Crescent City in Del Norte County.
We appreciate your patience as we work to stabilize the northbound lane, rebuild the southbound lane, and eventually resume normal two-way traffic (which – despite the damage caused by this slide and the unique challenges of the worksite – could occur as early as this summer).
In the meantime, please allow for about 25 minutes of delays on Last Chance Grade as we continue our efforts to ensure your safety. Caltrans, our several agency and non-governmental partners, and our elected officials are all working diligently towards a long-term solution at the Grade.
If we need to close the Grade for any reason, we’ll be sure to let you know here. For even more information about current highway conditions, visit the Caltrans Quickmap at quickmap.dot.ca.gov, grab the Quickmap app from the iOS App Store or Google Play store, or call 1-800-GAS-ROAD.
