Bell Springs Road Closed to Through Traffic

The Mendocino County Executive office issued a statement yesterday officially closing Bell Springs Rd. to through traffic, and warning that law enforcement will be checking for ID, a piece of mail, or to ensure that the road is only used by locals. Due to the closure of Hwy. 101, many drivers were using Bell Springs as an alternate route, which has resulted in several collisions. Officials also cite deteriorating road conditions as a reason for its closure.
