A crumbling stretch of Highway 101 south of Crescent City threatens to sever Del Norte County from the North Coast. Congressman Jared Huffman says stakeholders must unify behind an a single alternate route before seeking federal transportation dollars.  The North Coast Journal reports replacing Last Chance Grade could cost up to a billion dollars, and likely won't be completed before 2039. 


According to CalTrans,  US-101 is "closed approximately 10 miles north of the Del Norte County line (near Trees of Mystery) due to a downed tree that has fallen into power lines. Caltrans and fire personnel are on the scene, and PG&E is en route." No estimated time of reopening is reported. 

State highway 299 is also closed near French Creek due to a rockslide.
