Caltrans warns motorists that “State Route 299 is closed to Westbound traffic at JF Kennedy Memorial Rd (SHA CO) near Whiskeytown Lake and to Eastbound traffic at the Junction of State Route 3 near Douglas City (TRI Co)… .” However, there is a detour. Eastbound traffic is detouring south on Hwy 3 at Douglas City and then connecting with Hwy 36 and continuing east to I-5. Trucks larger than 65′ have to choose a different route.
