Canal Failure Closes Highway 101 In Morgan Hill

Published Wednesday February 22

The incident is the latest in a series of problems caused by the overflowing lake and the runoff from the dam’s spillway into Coyote Creek, which runs from Morgan Hill through San Jose and into San Francisco Bay.

Just east of the highway and Coyote Creek, the Coyote Canal – which contains stormwater below the freeway grade – failed as the rushing water burst through a levee.

The 2 northbound lanes of USA were submerged late Tue morning, prompting the CA Hwy Patrol to close northbound traffic at Cochrane Road.
