MENDOCINO Co. 2/10-2017 –Updated 11am: Traffic on the 101 near Piercy is once again being redirected onto the 271. Route 271 also had a slide on it yesterday. Here’s a picture of the slide on 101, courtesy of CalTrans District 1 Facebook page:

CHP Officer Kylar Adams asks drivers to pay attention to the signs that say ROAD CLOSED. Here he is sharing his experience from yesterday:

So ironically while filming the last face book live video about the dangers of driving through a road closure I had 3 separate drivers all drive through the road closure. So please, please pay attention to these signs they are there for a reason.

Mountain View Road and Fish Rock Road are open, but have numerous small slides.

Rt 1 near Leggett is still closed due to an active slide. Here’s a CalTrans video of the mud moving like lava:

Rt 1 at the Garcia River is still closed, with no estimated time of opening.

Rt 1 is also fully closed near Rockport, at mile marker 84.

Branscomb Road is blocked by a fir tree. Shortly before 6:30am, a vehicle swerved to miss the tree and slid off the road. No injuries were reported.

On Highway 20 between Willits and Fort Bragg, trees are down at mile marker 22.10. One lane opened at 5:13. CalTrans was setting flares.

A truck and a tree were blocking the Comptche Ukiah Road/Rt 1 between Mendocino and Little River as of 6:39am. CHP did not have “a good visual on the tree.”

Floods are expected in several rivers in the region as rain continues.

The Office of Emergency Services reports that:

“The Russian River peaked just under 20 ft (flood monitor stage), the Navarro River peaked just over 30 ft (moderate flood stage), and the Garcia River peaked just over 14 ft (just less than it peaked on Tuesday).”

About 200 customers are having power outages in the county, over half of them in Brooktrails. Other affected areas are in Comptche, Leggett, Fort Bragg, Little River, Point Arena, and Westport.

Upcoming road work includes some river work, as CalTrans plans to start clearing a log jam that has formed at the Navarro River Bridge on Rt 1. Here’s a picture of the situation:
