Highway 101 at Standish-Hickey Closed All Night, and Possibly Longer, Due to Slide

UPDATE, 3/10: Caltrans Hopes to Have Highway 101 in Northern Mendocino Open This Afternoon

# # #

Original Post: Highway 101 near the Peg House was buried in a mudslide a few minutes ago, and is currently impassible. No detours available. You can’t get to Mendocino County tonight via 101 for at least tonight, and possibly a lot longer.

Says Caltrans:

US Highway 101 was closed at about 6:39 this evening about 6 miles north of Leggett due to a large rockslide.  Rocks continue to fall, and the highway will remain closed and evaluated at daylight out of concern for worker safety. It is unknown how long the highway will remain closed. There is no detour.

We’ll update when we know more. See updates from CHP dispatch below.
