Caltrans has announced that U.S. 101 is fully closed in Del Norte County due to downed trees and snow.

There is no estimated time of reopening, as of this writing. 

Local travelers have been relaying their experiences on social media. One person said they "just made it through" before the closure. Another was not so lucky and said they might have to sleep in Crescent City tonight, rather than continuing on with their planned travel.

We will update this post when more information is available. 

Check https://quickmap.dot.ca.gov/ or the QuickMap app for the most up-to-date road conditions.
