U.S. Highway 101 in Gilroy reopened early Monday morning after severe flooding Sunday night caused it to close, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The flooding began around 7:30 p.m., prompting CHP officials to close it in both directions between 10th Street and state Highway 25.
The southbound lanes were reopened Monday morning around 4 a.m., followed by the northbound lanes at 5 a.m., according to CHP Officer Chris Miceli.
Also just outside of Gilroy, CHP officials have closed state Highway 152, which leads to Hollister, because of a mudslide.
The highway, also known as Hecker Pass Highway, is closed between Watsonville Road and Pole Line Road in both directions, Miceli said.
A Caltrans crew is set to survey the road Monday morning in order to organize a cleanup for the area.
The highway’s closure is indefinite since the cleanup and repairs could take days or even weeks, according to Miceli.
