Boulders strike vehicles, block two lanes of southbound Hwy 101 in Sausalito

Friday, March 22, 2013

The two right lanes of southbound Highway 101 at Alexander Avenue in Sausalito are blocked after large rocks fell onto the freeway from a hillside.

The large rocks made it through a chain link fence located past the Waldo Tunnel. At least five cars crashed into the rocks, including a Mercedes with extensive frontend damage and a Dodge Durango that had two front tires punctured.

CHP and Caltrans crews have the two right lanes closed to clean the debris. The two left lanes are open.

The CHP issued a Sig-alert at about 5 a.m. There is no estimated time when the freeway will fully reopen.
