State Route 271 is closed for the night after a landslide blocked both lanes bringing mud, rocks, and trees into the roadway.

The California Highway Patrol Traffic Incident Information Page indicates that authorities will be closing the road for the night and Caltrans will be on the scene tomorrow morning to clear the lanes.

SR 271 is a scenic portion of the former Highway 101 that also connects with State Route 1 just before it terminates in Leggett.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
