UPDATE, 9:48 a.m.: The Humboldt County Department of Public Works begs:

Bell Springs Road is posted closed, local traffic only.


A slide closed Highway 101 near Leggett last night, and Caltrans is still working to clean it up this morning. They’re not sure when they’ll have the road open again.

No through traffic to/from Mendocino County as of right now.

According to the CHP incident logs, workers are also putting up signs on Bell Springs Road warning big rigs and would-be through travelers not to attempt a detour that way.

We’ll update when we know more.
