Orr Springs Rd is now open for one-lane traffic. The Mendocino County DOT says the new temporary bridge is now open but the maximum speed is 5 mph and the maximum weight is 20 tons. They remind you to be cautious, as there is still work being done. Officials will monitor the bridge and it’s for-now-gravel ramps and may have to close it again to it make adjustments as needed. At some point they will pave the ramps. They are also now working on plans for totally repairing Orr Springs Road.

If you saw a big police presence in Fort Bragg Thursday, that was the capture of a fugitive from Bodega Bay. A tip led detectives to Sean Cameron at a hotel in Fort Bragg after he had eluded them for three weeks since a warrant was issued for him for domestic violence and assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury. The woman reporting it told deputies Cameron was armed with a handgun and rifle.

Clear Lake State Park will be open for day use starting on Wednesday March 15. Day use hours are sunrise to sunset. The park has been closed since February 9 due to flooding of main park roads, campgrounds, cabins, boat launch, day use, and restroom facilities. Even thought the day use and boating are coming back, the campgrounds and cabins remain closed. And reopening them is still undetermined as erosion and facilities damage are still being evaluated since floodwaters have still not receded enough to even access all the areas of the State Park.
