[UPDATE Wednesday] 101 Closed Again at Bridges Creek
UPDATE 9:36 p.m.: According to a tweet from Humboldt County, “Please use Hwys 20, 36 & 299 as a detour. Do not use local roads to avoid slide. Many r dirt roads, damaged by storms & not for Hwy traffic.”
UPDATE 9:51 p.m.: A reader sent in a broad view of the slide.
UPDATE 10:08 p.m.: A trucker’s wife allowed us to embed her Facebook post which has a video from her husband who is stuck on the far side of the slide in a semi….image backing up a big rig or turning it around there….
UPDATE 10:30 p.m.: A reader shared this dashcam video of the workers on the slide frequently stopping traffic as they are obviously worried about the slide coming in. The dashcam owner said he was either the last or one of the last through before the slide came down.
UPDATE 10:52 p.m.: Mendocino County Department of Transportation’s Facebook page just posted, “Due to the closure of Hwy 101 North of Leggett, California by Caltrans, Bell Springs Rd is again CLOSED. The previously posted conditions for passage are in effect. Please see the press release dated April 20, 2017 for more information.” (See here for the press release.)
