Here’s your Wednesday afternoon status report from Caltrans on the slide-gobbled section of Highway 101 just north of Leggett:
US101 CLOSURE UPDATE 4/26 4:45 PM:
Our contractors have been able to resume work after slide activity closed the highway again last night. The slide has been sporadically active throughout the day, with work being suspended during periods of increased slide activity.
We’re cautiously optimistic that we may be able to restore one-way traffic by this weekend.
