Recent storms continue to complicate life in Mendocino County this Monday morning. Flooding and storm damage has prompted closures of local thoroughfares and warnings from one local fire agency to “stay off of the roads today.”
Here are the major closures residents should be aware of them before hitting the road:
- State Route 175, an essential east-west corridor between Hopland and Lake County, continues to be closed west of the Russian River Bridge in the middle of the Sanel Valley due to flooding.
- State Route 128, the east-west artery running from Cloverdale to Highway 1 on the coast, is closed due to floodwaters from the Navarro River. The closure is located between mile marker 0 near the Navarro Bridge to Flynn Creek Road.
- Highway 1 along the Mendocino County coast has multiple closures as of 7:00 this morning.
- A downed tree has completely blocked Highway 1 between Anchor Bay and Gallaway
- The Garcia River’s floodwaters have closed Highway 1 between Flumeville and Loretta.
- Near the intersection of Highway 1 and Gordon Lane, between Little River and the town of Mendocino, a tree fell across the highway early this morning and soon after a vehicle crashed into it. There were no reported injuries, but emergency personnel are awaiting a loader from the Department of Transportation to finalize clearing the road.
- Highway 1 is closed as it runs through the town of Mendocino due to downed utility lines. AT&T personnel are making their way to the scene to secure the area.
Conditions are constantly changing so please use the Caltrans Quickmap to check out road conditions before hitting the road.
