U.S. Highway 101 just north of Leggett was reopened to one-way traffic control Friday as Caltrans says the landslide cleanup is ahead of schedule.

 

According to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, the removal work of nearly 25,000 cubic yards of debris has cost Caltrans about $2 million. By the time the highway is open to both lanes in a few months, the cleanup may total approximately $5 million.
