[UPDATE Tuesday] Hwy 101 Closed Six Miles North of Leggett
US Highway 101 is closed about 6 miles north of Leggett due to a rockslide. It is unknown when the highway will reopen.
This is the location that has been under one-way traffic control for about five weeks.
Bell Springs Road is being closed. The CHP Traffic Incident Information page states that Bell Springs is open to “residents only. No semi trucks on Bell Springs Road…so we don’t have semi’s using the road like last time… .”UPDATE 8:53 a.m.: Caltrans updated their Facebook at approximately 8:40 a.m. They added the following photo and said, “There is no local detour available, and we do not have an estimated time for reopening yet.” UPDATE 10:45 a.m.: Caltrans is now saying,
UPDATE 10:22 p.m.: Bell Springs Road Blocked (Now open)
We’re now estimating that U.S. Highway 101 north of Leggett in Mendocino County may reopen to one-way traffic sometime on Wednesday, April 19. It is unlikely that the road will reopen before then.
A photo from farther back shows the scale of the slide in relation to the roadway and offending hillside.
Staff on-site has relayed that there is more slide material hanging above the road which has yet to come down.
