Default JUST heard this re: 101

Radio guy just announced that there will be "NO" crossing of golf-carts at all for 101 until further notice. There had been a detour but the sherriff's deputies after assisting yesterday decided that even the detour was too dangerous. So make other plans "IF" you are wanting to go over to the other side....ie. drive your car. Tell your friends who may not listen to the radio, read the newspaper OR have a computer. Yes there are these out there!!!

Also NO pedestrians should try to go through the tunnel. NOONE should try to move the barricades to the tunnel. There are always those who think the rules don't apply to them.

No WalMart! That'll be worse than cabin fever.

Guess I'll have to bolt on the cart's off-road wheels and head for the WalMart on 441 instead.

Give me a push when you see my laden cart struggling back over the bridge.

Not sure if there is a problem; could be regular maintenance, but it is definitely well blocked off. I have seen a few carts cross at Woodbridge. Probably not legal, definitely dangerous, but it is being done and better than further down. You can't keep those Wally World shoppers down!

Regular maintenance and no do NOT go across on Woodbridge or whatever it's called. The sherrif's department deemed it was too dangerous!! It generally is anyway to try to either get out on 101 a:spoken and that's in a car, or across it there. Worse though with golf carts also in the mix.
