101 closed north of Redway

Both lanes completely closed following landslide 5 miles north of the Redway exit.  The asphalt is buckled as seen in this photo from the KMUD website.  KMUD reports the closure will last a minimum of 2 weeks.

More photos.

    One by one we seem to be losing our north coast roads.

    I can’t imagine no traffic on 101 for two weeks. I suspect they’ll have one lane, controlled traffic open within days. And two weeks seems pretty optimistic from looking at the photos. It looks like they’re going to have to completely rebuild some of the road.

    I see they are estimating the slide to be 12-15 feet deep. I wonder how wide it is.

    looking at the aerial photos that is one big slide.
    we drove that way home from S.F. on Monday and there were several spots that looked ripe to slide onto the highway.

  9. March 30, 2011 at 2:31 pm

    Ann Jones of CalTrans on KHUM: 101 could be open to 1-way traffic in 2-3 days, depending on the weather. Slide is still moving. Removal effort will begin soon.

  10. March 30, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    Tomorrow is a state holiday so CalTrans will be closed tomorrow, says Jones. No new updates until Friday morning.

    I think this issue should put into prospective, the completely unnecessary project that Richardson Grove is…. There are several areas of 101, in Humboldt alone, which are in danger of sliding just like this.

    Slide prone areas are a safety issue. The proposed widening of the area in Richardson grove is cosmetic at best.

    If we would get some more tax cuts for the one percenters going by cutting back on the Caltran budget and maybe stripping some rights from state employees, we could get this slide problem taken care of in no time. Let’s get 101 in the hands of private enterprise. And let’s not scare them away with regulations that discourage them from making a profit.

  34. March 31, 2011 at 6:51 am

    Ye, Doug, it is sarcasm. I just wanted to remind the right-wingers who troll this blog that the ill-advised “Lower my taxes, harumph!” policies that their leaders now champion can have dire results when a community needs help. I think most people have seen enough now (from abysmal US education rankings to crumbling infrastructure to gulf oil disasters) to realize that shrinking government down small enough to “drown it in a bathtub” sounds cool and all, but is stupid. We gotta pay taxes, folks, because sometimes bad shit happens and we have to be prepared.

    06em,

    So, do you believe that taxes are wasted? Ok then (Your answer HAS TO BE YES), why increase taxes to keep funneling waste?

    Everyone not a GE fascist type is over-paying on taxes when taxes are multiplicitive almost everywhere a person roams and almost everywhere a person looks, etc… So, kinda hard to chump on right wingers, left wingers or any in the middle wingers who say to cut taxes. The argument about where to cut taxes always comes out. Generally though, the complications of the tax code are intentional to force most people to be stupid in a politically concocted, sorta of schemish economic way.

    JL

  37. 06em
    March 31, 2011 at 7:47 am

    WTF? No. I don’t think the vast majority of taxes are wasted. It is easy to point to the $400 wrench or the $2,000 toilet, but most tax money is used for purposes that we would sorely miss if we had to do without.

    I’m leaving out of my argument the huge Wall Street bailout that we are still too close to to properly judge the wisdom of … but it sure hasn’t put people back to work.

  38. March 31, 2011 at 7:48 am

    As someone commented on the North Coast Journal blog on this: I was wondering if anyone’s checked the bottom of the slide? Might someone have been driving by when that happened and got caught in it? Could be a car is buried beneath it?

    06em,

    On your more direct explanation, we disagree. I believe most taxes are wasted (>50%). See, it comes back to HIGH SOCIETAL VALUATED COSTS.

    Also, it is a waste of tax dollars for over-paid, half arse work done by union fux too who take too many paid breaks. If sleeping was work, enough Public Employees WOULD! To be fair, union fux in the private sector that manufacture junk products (Ya know, buy a new car, drive it off the lot, it depreciates by 33% immediately and breaks down shortly thereafter).

    Yup, paying for a brand spanking new to break down product is over-paying taxes too!

    I can deduce many angles to the jangles of over-taxation schemes, whether direct or indirect, and based on economic inferiorities.

    06em,

    It is partly that since a very young age, economics and socio-political knowledge was what was sought and never has stopped; so essentially, from that young age, unions have been understood for what they do and how they impact the greater good for all labor and not segregated labor at the expense of the rest of the non-segregated laborers.

    Regarding taxes – Unions are fascist tax dollar creators, especially by those post transaction consumers for whom, after purchasing the unionized products, then have to spend more money and taxes dealing with the poorly manufactured unionized product that was sold at a higher sales transaction price due to the unionized labor charges and other unionized expenses, fees, charges, royalties, etc….. (ex. : how much of that and various taxes make up the cost of a new vehicle less the poor manufacturing craftsmanship?).

    Answer to ex.: More than a person would think, including myself as I was shocked during such a purchase.

    Don’t mention the time off from earning wages while dealing with a fascist schemers product flaws. So, the flaws in one’s business creates taxes by forcing an injured consumer to create business and thus tax collections on that ill-founded unionized business product “fix-it process” that was forced upon a manipulated consumer when societal costs are MEGA HIGH and taxes collected are more and more based upon these false valuations.

    Not only did those union scammers make out with higher pay and benefits while poorly manufacturing an over-valuated product , but the unionees also helped to create higher tax collections due to poorly manufactured unionized products for which the consumer gets the privilege to pay more valuated taxes while dealing with a lemon of a product (back to the fix-it process).

    Hey, maybe everyone needs to manufacture crap, because getting everyone to manufacture quality for the long term…… actually lowers taxes collectible….until a new scheme comes around to offset what people are learning about taxation. Throw-Away-Society for HUGE DEBT; throw-away-society for the over-populated. Darned throw-away-society perpetuated by greed, power and control.

    Double Standards in life, again and again.

This is a dream come true for the local survivalists who’ve got their year of vittles and ammo stashed away and those who say they live from ‘local’ resources. So who needs the 101 anyway?m Won’t do much for the tourist trade though, maybe Chevron can offer passenger accomodations on their gas barges. I drove on 299, worried about ice, other drivers, and lumber trucks. 101 is almost as dangerous with speeders(of the kinetic and chemical kind) and stoners.

Apparently Mr. Sallaway survived nearly being gobbled up during yesterday’s risky hillside efforts snapping his awesome pics while the ground was still moving. See Kym’s site for more of the oozy and woozy details. It’s alive, folks. And it’s hungry.

    A rumor had started over AT&T interrupting Humboldt’s fiber optic line for repair, as reported on the radio an hour ago–but this has been discredited and quashed for the most part with no basis in fact. “Not so fast,” Hank Sims reported on his increasingly stellar website, the Lost Coast Outpost. He’s all over this tracking it down like the reporter, astute observer, and fact finder he is, and PDQ fast, one might add. “We’re pretty sure that no planned outages are imminent,” he noted. Whew. That was a close one. Thanks, Hank.

    Also, temporary bus service will be happening– via Redding and Crescent City by Grehound– as arranged by Arcata’s Tranportation Department. Mr. Sims’ Lost Coast Outpost has more information on this, adding, “The City of Arcata Transportation Division has arranged temporary bus service to redirect passengers whose travel plans are affected by the road closure on Highway 101 north of Garberville. Temporary bus service has been arranged to take Greyhound and Amtrak passengers from the Arcata Transit Center to Redding if traveling south and to Crescent City if they are traveling north.” See the Lost Coast Outpost for more details. Way to go, folks.

Then, I shook my head and thought, “from all the pictures I saw of the proposed spans, I never thunk that the bridge system was only going to be 2 lanes total”. Too bad it is not 4 lanes.

    Too bad no one takes Jeffrey’s intuitions more seriously. Right, Jeffrey?

    8:00 pm,

    Many people have great insights and intuitions.

    Me, I am just a fool and not too bright, cynical in a good way, but my IQ is way too low for most people it appears. So, I try to learn, but my capacity to do such is encumbered by a very deep divide between the two halves that make up my brain.

    The Confusion Hill Bridge is a perfect example – I researched and researched and never fully understood that the bridge was only going to be two lanes – even though a simple question would have answered the thought. I was so excited to see something accomplished to avoid the slide area that I never even thought of the total number of lanes on the bridges.

    So, stupid is as stupid does on me. Live and learn.

    Today’s Times-Standard article is in, Caltrans: ‘Cautiously optimistic’ U.S. Highway 101 will open to one-way traffic Sunday by Thadeus Greenson and Donna Tam

    and another article about Dave’s son, Nathan, ‘Seeing and hearing the landslide up close; a forgotten clipboard may have saved a life’ by Thadeus Greenson

    Thadeus writes,
    “Plainly, Nathan Stancliff has never liked the route. Though he’s driven his Delreka Distributing truck from Eureka to Garberville once a week for several months to deliver to Southern Humboldt grocery stores, he’s always done so a bit nervously. “I’ve told everyone that I don’t like this route because I feel there’s going to be a landslide,” Stancliff said Thursday..”

    You can read more in the article.

    “Jeffrey is right. Unioners love disaster, anything to game the system with. Anything to justify their crime.”

    I suppose to “House-Slaves” men and women banding together for a better life must seem like a crime. It’s almost laughable to hear cowardly collaborators denounce people of their own class for struggling against exploitation, while they just sit and pronounce judgment from their master’s point of view.

    Freedom ain’t for Sissies.

    Moviedad, freedom is for everyone who has the courage to demand it, sissies included.

    Sissy is not a synonym for Coward!
