Caltrans has announced that Highway 1 has closed north of Point Area after the Garcia River breached its banks and flooded the roadway. Caltrans estimates the earliest the roadway will reopen is sometime next week.
This closure is one of a handful in Mendocino County that is commonplace during times of high water. The other roadways often affected are State Route 218 near its intersection with Highway 1, State Route 175 in Hopland, and Ukiah’s Perkins Street as well as Talmage Road.
