U.S. 101 through Last Chance Grade may reopen to one-way traffic at 8 p.m., but motorists should expect delays, Caltrans said Saturday.

From an 11 a.m. Caltrans Facebook post:

TE (2/20-11:00 a.m.): We expect U.S. 101 to reopen at 8 p.m. TONIGHT to one-way traffic control. Motorists should anticipate 30-minute delays. The plan is subject to change and is dependent on no additional slide activity.

U.S. 101 remains closed at Last Chance Grade south of Crescent City due to landslide activity. The slide activity has slowed down from yesterday and last night. Crews are making progress on removing the large volume of rocks and trees. Crews are working around the clock to reopen the highway as soon as it is safe to do so. We will update later today with an estimated reopening time.
