[UPDATE: Reopened BUT Very Bad Road] Bell Springs Road Blocked
Since Hwy 101 was shut down by a slide late last night, locals have been using Bell Springs Road, a Humboldt/Mendocino County backroad to travel around the slide. As of 9:32 p.m. the road has been blocked by a “Pinske moving van,” according to the CHP Traffic Incident Information Page.
“No one can get around the vehicle,” according to information posted there.
Bell Springs Road is not recommended for most drivers and most vehicles.
UPDATE 6:30 a.m.: According to the CHP dispatch, the moving van was pulled out and over to the side of the road where the driver is going to wait until light and hopefully, doesn’t get stuck again. However, dispatch tells me the road is very, very bad. Please local traffic only!
