Hwy 299 will be closed from 11 a.m. til about 12 p.m. today as a big boulder is removed from the area of the Burnt Ranch slide. Earlier, 299 was blocked temporarily due to a rock slide about five miles west of Helena.

“Crews will be performing blasting operations to remove a large boulder from the side of the roadway,” reports Caltrans District 1 Facebook page about the one hour delay at Burnt Ranch.
