Numerous LoCO readers have bemoaned long delays — over half an hour, by some reports! — on Highway 101 as Caltrans continues work on the monstrous Horseshoe Slide north of Leggett (map below).
But temporary relief is on its way, thank Jah! Caltrans has announced that they will take a little break at the end of this week so that Reggae on the River festival goers can get to both reggae and river ASAP.
Caltrans explains their intentions below:
Due to anticipated high traffic volumes for Reggae on the River, work at the Horseshoe Slide north of Leggett in Mendocino County will be suspended this weekend.
Signalized one-way traffic control will still be in effect, but extended delays will not be in place Friday, August 4th through Monday, August 7th. Work *will* be taking place on Thursday, but will be halted if delays begin to exceed 30 minutes.
