“The slide on US 101 at Last Chance Grade in Del Norte Co has been cleared, and the road is open,” tweeted Caltrans District 1 at 5:31 a.m. Yesterday, at about 4:30 p.m., the hillside slumped onto the two-lane road south of Crescent City. Workers were eventually able to clear the road enough to allow one-way controlled traffic until 9 p.m. At that time the road was shut down and slide removal continued through the night.
Fortunately, this main highway north is now completely open.
