Daily Slide Update - No Getting Through This Weekend

This morning I once again spoke with Caltrans Spokesman Eli Rohl to get an update on the 101 slide north of Leggett. The good news is, no new slide action overnight, however, geologists are determining whether or not it is safe to begin clearing the norther part of the slide (this is the newest part of the slide). If so, contractors are expected to begin 24 hour work on it. However, the earliest the road will be open again is sometime next week. For now, Caltrans recommends taking 299 or 36 to the 5 to go around. Again, please do not take Bell Springs Road. It is not mean for high traffic and is for locals only.
