I got unofficial word of this earlier today from Rock Knocker Alder Creek, MM 7, south of Gorda. There is a big crack up at the top, the pebbles are rolling, and it is only a matter of a short time (tonight? tomorrow?) before it lets go! Extremely unstable per Rock Knocker, the guys who have been up top, and now its OFFICIAL. Nacimiento-Fergusson is the way in and out again for a while – unknown how long. Cal-Trans will reevaluate this tomorrow to see how much movement there is. From yesterday until today, there was a surprising and unexpected amount of movement.
Rumors that it will open tonight are very likely inaccurate, as the closure happened about 4:30 pm, and I’ve been watching this development most of the day.
