[UPDATE 11:15 a.m.] State Route 299 Might Be Closed Until Wednesday (Maybe It Will Open Intermittently)
So, those of you hoping to go through 299 east for the holidays will likely have access, according to Caltrans.
UPDATE 11:15 a.m.: Caltrans District 1 reports on its Facebook page,
It is expected that Route 299 will remain closed throughout the weekend, and that one-way traffic control may be possible sometime next week.
A large boulder precariously located in the slide area will have to be removed by heavy equipment. Material is being removed from the area above the slope failure and crews will work down the hillside from there.
If intermittent openings are possible, our partners in District 2 will work to get folks through as they can.
State Route 36 is the closest and most direct state highway detour around the closure.
