Travelers Should Expect Some Delays on 101 at Slide North of Leggett
Planning on driving on Hwy 101 at Bridges Creek north of Leggett where the slide came in and blocked the road for days this last month? Are you wondering if the road is still open?
The good news is the road is open and no one has to drive hours out of their way to get through the Redwood Curtain.The bad news, according to Caltrans, is that travelers headed through the slide area that blocked Hwy 101 for days should expect delays of up to 30 minutes between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. (C’mon, admit it, 30 minute delays don’t sound so bad compared to driving for hours when the road was blocked.)
Here’s what Caltrans District 1 posted on their Facebook page,
101 north of Leggett will be experiencing delays of up to 30 minutes 7 am to 7 pm weekdays to stabilize the hillside at the location of recent rockslides and install a cable mesh system. The work may take 2-3 months to complete and reopen both lanes.
