Highway 101 to open Monday morning

It looks like school and businesses can get back to normal Monday now that the massive landslide that smothered Highway 101 North of Redway has been removed and the roadway repaved.

No one was injured when the landslide covered both lanes of 101 Wednesday morning, but schools were closed and some businesses in the Redway/Garberville area were running on skeleton crews with staff stranded north of the slide.

The photo comes from Kym Kemp’s blog, which has kept Southern Humboldt County up to speed on the slide situation.

    Let us hope the road is fully-fixed in record time.

    You know, up our way you could die trying to walk from Cedar Flat to Burnt Ranch. If a Chip-Truck didn’t run you over on the narrow road, you could fall off the crumbling ledge. After they did their work, they made a 3ft “Bike Lane” on the side of the road. I walked it just before they started, and right after they finished. No joke, it will save a life eventually. Up here we really appreciate Cal-Trans. They are our heroes. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen them out in the middle of the freezing night rain trying to clear the road so we could get to where we need to go.
    I admit I’m pretty ignorant on the “Richardson Grove” issue; but I do know how hard these guys work and how important they are to all of us.
    How about we force Exxon/Mobil to start paying California 2% on the trillions of dollars they make on our off-shore oil wells and we give every cal-trans worker a raise?

    Moviedad, you saying they don’t just all stand around leaning on shovels and drawing pay from those hard earned tax dollars? A raise, maybe a cost of living adjustment, so they don’t gain but stay even with inflation? Wait till Jeffrey hears about this. Don’t you know that no body but bankers and CEOs are entitled to raises and bonuses because of their hard work. And while we’re at at lets privatize Cal-trans and bring on the non union 8 buck an hour workers and let those job creators make some real money.
