On March 21, there was a landslide detected near Redwood Boulevard and Buck Center Drive in Marin County. Later that month, PG&E built a temporary bypass that avoided the impacted slope and ensured safe operations. US-101 southbound was shut down on the weekend of March 25.
Caltrans, PG&E, and the County of Marin have been in collaboration, monitoring the slide area. Caltrans thanks motorists and cyclists for their patience while we work to maintain our state's highways, bridges, and tunnels.
