Highway 101 to open at Monday morning, but close that evening

From Caltrans:

Eureka – Caltrans has announced that Route 101 in Southern Humboldt County remains closed due to a large mudslide approximately one mile north of Dean Creek, approximately 60 miles south of Eureka. Crews are currently working 24 hours a day to clear the slide as soon as possible.

On Monday, April 4, from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM, the road will be open to one-way controlled traffic. At that time, motorists should expect delays of up to one hour.
After 6:00 PM, the road will be closed once again until Tuesday morning. Caltrans will issue another update by noon on Monday, April 4, regarding the timeline for reopening to one-way controlled traffic on Tuesday, April 5.

All work is weather dependent. While the road is closed, the alternate route for motorists is Interstate 5, which can be reached north of the slide from Routes 36 or 299 and south of the slide by Route 20. For the most current road information on all State highways, please call 1-800-427-7623 (1-800-GAS-ROAD) or visit http://www.dot.ca.gov.

    I AM A SUSCRIBER TO THE PRESS AND A 68 YR OLD SENIOR. I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN SEEING A SKED OF EVENTS HELD IN McKINLEYVILLE. SPORTS AND A EVENTS HELD AT LOCAL SCHOOLS, I PASS THE HIGHSCHOOL ON A ROUTINE BASIS AND SEE MANY CARS AS WELL AS HILLER PARK AND DON’T HAVE A CLUE WHAT IS THE EVENT. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A PARENT TO BE IN THE LOOP AND ENJOY YOUNG BEHAVIORS.

    James,
    Thank for the suggestion. We could certainly do a better job telling folks what’s going on around town. I’ll try to figure out some ways to get more stuff in the paper.

    1. Jack publishes HSU press releases in the newspaper, thus improving public perception of the university.
    2. More local students attend HSU, some of them journalism majors.
    3. Some journalism graduates remain in Humboldt County, a few of them in McKinleyville because of the disparity between flatland housing prices and elevation.
    4. Some of those journalism graduates procreate.
    5. Some of those journalism graduates become involved in their kids’ schools.
    6. Jack encourages those journalism parents to write for the newspaper.

    All told, we’ll have maybe one contributor in about 20 years.
