[UPDATE–Now Open!] Avenue of the Giants Blocked by Tree
UPDATE 9:41 a.m.: The Avenue is now clear in both areas. Yeah, Caltrans!
UPDATE 9:00 a.m.: According to Caltrans’ spokesperson Eli Rohl, “There are two trees down – the first one up at [post mile] 39 and another near [post mile] 18.” One tree fall causing a partial closure is by Holmes. It is north of Weott. The second, as posted earlier, is a full closure south of Weott. The northern tree fall should be cleared by 10:30, Rohl said. At this point, the southern tree fall has no estimated time for being cleared. Caltrans is sending crews to the site to clear it as soon as possible.
UPDATE 8:41 a.m.: Caltrans estimates the closure will last one to two hours.
