Hwy 299 closed this morning at Big French Creek as the slide Caltrans has been battling again covered the road. There is no estimated time of reopening as of now, according to a Caltrans source. We’ll update with more information when it comes in.

Meanwhile Hwy 20 in Lake County, Hwy 199, Hwy 36 are possible alternatives that connect with Hwy 5. Though semi drivers should consult before taking either of the latter two routes.
