Slide Blocking 101 Won’t Hold Still; For Safety Reasons, Work Suspended
The slide north of Leggett in Mendocino County has been much more active this afternoon. Currently, operations have been suspended at the site and no work will be permitted to take place tonight out of concern for worker safety.
We still hope to reopen the highway to one-way traffic before the weekend, but continued slide activity may further delay a reopening.
Prior to work being suspended, crews snapped these photos of the spider excavator positioned at the top of the slide where it has been working to clear material that could otherwise come down in an uncontrolled manner.
