Breaking News: Lodge Lightning Complex Friday Fire Update (Final)

The KZYX Incident Update for Friday, August 22, 2014 10:00AM

Status:

The fire status has not been updated by Cal Fire since Wednesday evening. It appears that there will be no additional updates until/unless there is a significant change in the status. KZYX will monitor Cal Fire and other fire, police, and safety sources and advise if needed.

Incident Update Wednesday, August 20, 2014 6:30PM

The Essentials: Fire Information Line: (626) 622-7927 • Acres:  12,535 • Containment:  95% • Injuries:  15 •Structures Threatened: none • Fire Engines: 5 • Fire Crews: 8 • Bulldozers: 9 • Helicopters: 1 • Water Tenders: 11 • Total Personnel: 366 • www.fire.ca.gov

Current Situation: Crews continue mopping up and looking for hot spots within the contingency lines; steep terrain is making access difficult. Interior portions of the fire will continue to burn and produce smoke for an extended period of time in the Ukiah Valley; this may create possible health issues. Fire resources will continue suppression repair efforts throughout the fire area. Resources continue to be released from the fire to other incidents or back to their home units.

MCTV programming ended Friday night July 19th. The last program was an 

interview with Executive Director Elizabeth Swenson about the events that 

resulted in the dissolution. It can be seen on MCTV's website, 

www.mendocoasttv.org


Ms SWENSON, wrote Saturday “Yes, MCTV is defunct, though the 

dissolution will take some time .... But right now MCTV has no money to pay Footlighters or to pay staff. At this point, any money we raised would go to 

the Footlighters. If they and their lawyer dropped the judgment, MCTV, with a lot of financial help (probably less than $50,000 to start up again), could

 move and set up someplace and MCTV could survive. While in theory this

 is possible, there is no indication that this is going to happen.


I believe the petition circulated online is worth signing and it serves to see if there is support for community access and also to let local governments 

know Community Access is important to this community and essentially ask them to step up and help financially to get a new non-profit to run community access. 



 

 

 

Caltrans announced today that paving on Route 29 south of Lower Lake in

 Lake County will begin Monday, July 22.  Work hours will be 5:30AM to 

4PM, weekdays.  One-way traffic control will be in effect, with up to 10-minute delays.  


This $1.7 million project will repave about seven miles of Route 29 from Lower Lake to near Hidden Valley Lake with a thin asphalt overlay that will be 

porous which allows water to drain through the surface.  This will provide 

better traction and reduce tire road spray during wet weather.  Work may be completed by the end of August.




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During the past two weeks Willits residents have been awakened at 6:30 

a.m. by the sounds of pile driving. But, on Thurday, July 18, CalTrans and 

its contractors agreed not to drive piles for the duration of the project until 

after 7 a.m.


Although all construction projects permitted through Mendocino County or 

the City of Willits have such noise restrictions, CalTrans is not required to 

abide by them.  The sound of driving the project's 1,600 piles will likely 

impact different areas in Little Lake Valley at times during the project 

construction period. Piles will be installed in most areas along the 6 mile 

construction corridor. 




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Caltrans begins a repaving project on Highway 29 south of Lower Lake 

today  Monday, July 22.  


This $1.7 million project will repave about seven miles of Highway 29 from 

Lower Lake to near Hidden Valley Lake with a thin asphalt overlay to

 provide a smoother, safer, driving surface.  


The new asphalt layer will be porous, which allows water to drain through 

the surface. This will provide better traction and reduce tire road spray 

during wet weather.


Work is anticipated to be completed by the end of August.


Work hours will be 5:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., weekdays.

 

 

 

One-way traffic control will be in effect, and motorists should anticipate up to 10-minute delays.  




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Construction continues to block Highway 101 south of Willits on the Haehl 

Overhead bridge 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays with 10 minute delays. 


Traffic delays will be up to five minutes north of Willits on Highway 101 from midnight to 6 p.m. weekdays. East Hill Road will be closed to through traffic until August 9.



Bypass protests are probably going to continue. SOLLV held an all day workshop Saturday called Get Out Of Your House And Into the Trees — Tree 

Climbing Workshop in Little Lake Valley designed to show people "the 

technical skills involved in creating effective aerial blockades, like those that have been carried out by the tree sitters and wick drain tower sitter."
