Information from Caltrans District 1:

SR 175 has been reopened!

SR 175 between Hopland and Lakeport has been reopened after being closed Sunday by the River Fire. Motorists should drive with extra caution due to fire crews still working in the area. Also, if you are not familiar with this highway it is very windy with a restriction that no vehicles over 39 feet in total length are allowed.

Special thanks to our tree crew who completed removing all fire damaged hazard trees yesterday. The photos below were taken this week along SR 175.
