Via Twitter

Motorists should be advised that wildfires along US 101 are affecting highway traffic.   

"It's between Scotia and Stafford, south of the mill and north of the Stafford interchange," CalTrans' Eli Rohl told KHSU.

"We closed the rightmost northbound lane, and the southbound lanes are all open. We've only got one lane closed, everything else is open and moving," Rohl said.

CalTrans District 1: UPDATE: The northbound #2 (right-most) lane of U.S. Highway 101 near Scotia in Humboldt County has been closed to traffic. Southbound lanes are flowing. Expect delays and potential low visibility as you travel through the area. ====================== FIRE ADVISORIES: Caltrans is responding to U.S. Highway 101 near Scotia in Humboldt County to evaluate the need for traffic control or a potential closure as a result of wildfires burning on both sides of the highway. We'll update as we learn more. U.S. Highway 101 approximately 5 miles south of Laytonville in Mendocino County is under one-way controlled traffic while firefighters work to extinguish a roadside fire. Expect delays.
