MENDOCINO Co., 4/14/2017 -- There are a couple of obstacles in the roads this morning. Mountain View Road is blocked by a slide at mile marker 14.10, about halfway between Route 128 and the coast. CHP expects the road to be closed most of the day.
At 4:44am, CHP received a report of a small tree blocking both lanes of Route 20 on a blind curve at mile marker 22, between Willits and Fort Bragg. However, there is a large gravel turnout that vehicles can use to get around the tree. Shortly after 5am, CalTrans' estimated time of arrival was 45 minutes.
