[UPDATE 12:44 p.m.] 101 Might Reopen This Afternoon
According to a post from Caltrans this morning,
The highway is currently under a full closure, but we hope to open it up to one-way traffic early this afternoon.
The slide has spilled over and brought down the catchment fence. If more rocks were to come down the hill, there would be no protection for vehicles below them. These rocks are not small and would cause significant vehicular damage and injury to anyone struck by them.
Our crews and contractors will be working to clear the debris and repair the fence, and will open the roadway as soon as it is safe to do so.
UPDATE 12:44 p.m.: Good News! Traffic is Traveling Through the Hwy 101 Closure
