Highway 101 closed in Mendocino

 

MENDOCINO- Highway 101 is closed in northern Mendocino county but there is a detour.

Traffic is being re-routed on SR 271 and motorist should expect 5-10 minute delays.

The closure is expected to remain in effect until Friday. It’s the same location of last winter’s slide as the hillside is starting to move again.

Caltrans is proactively closing the northbound lanes and installing concrete railing. Once in place, north and southbound traffic will use the southbound lanes.
