[UPDATE 10:39 p.m.] Slide at Bridges Creek North of Leggett on Hwy 101 Acting Up; Caltrans Will Be Watching It Closely
Caltrans has put up two rock fences near the slide that closed Hwy 101 overnight a few weeks ago. “Even with that, rocks have jumped over both rock barriers,” Frisbee said. “Just before one, a large tree came down. [Then again] about 4:15 another tree came down. “It moved the K-rail,” Frisbee said. “[Workers] briefly had a closure to make sure that tree wasn’t going to cause issues.”
Caltrans currently has one worker on each end of the slide. “They are letting vehicles going through two or three at a time so they can stop them quickly if they see a problem.”
Be aware of this problem area and check Quickmap before you travel.
UPDATE 10:39 p.m.: A reader tells us that there was at least an hour delay coming north through the area about 9:30 p.m. According to the reader, one car at a time is let through and “encouraged to go fast.”
