Hwy 299: Open More Hours for More People
Hwy 299 will now be open all day on Sunday and will also be open to everyone not just locals. Below is the Caltrans District 2 Facebook post giving details:
All 6 daily openings (morning, afternoon, overnight, 10 am, 12 noon, and 2 pm) are no longer restricted to local traffic only; all travelers are welcome to use the current detour opening schedules.
Every Sunday, the detour is open starting at 5:30 am and continuing all day until Monday at 7:30 am, with one-way traffic control and up to 30-minute delays.
All openings are subject to change at any time due to weather conditions or for safety reasons.
We ask the public to continue checking Caltrans District 2 Facebook and Twitter pages, calling the information hotline at (530) 225-3452, downloading the app (Caltrans Quickmap) or checking Quickmap via online before travel.
Caltrans D2 appreciates you, travelers and local residents, for your willingness to work with us during this complex project.
