A broken down tractor-trailer is backing up northbound and southbound traffic on Highway 101 near the Last Chance Grade construction site, according to a California Highway Patrol incident report.

Caltrans reports on its website that one-way traffic control has been set up in the area and that multiple trucks are attempting to tow the big rig to the shoulder of the highway.

The CHP initially anticipated two-hour delays in the area. However, that time will likely be reduced now that one-way traffic control is in effect.
