[UPDATE 2:30 p.m.] Weather and Roads for Saturday to Help You Make Plans

The rainy weather the last few days on top of already soaked ground has damaged several roads. (See below for what areas have problems.)

Today, we should mostly have showers and hopefully, road conditions won’t worsen, but as storms roll in tomorrow and through the coming week stay alert to problems on our highways.

We’ll update though the day in blue if more information comes in.

Major Highways:

(Most information below from Caltrans’ Quick Map. If you are heading to Oregon, check their similar site.)

  • HWY 1: Closed in both direction just west of Leggett. (See here for more info.)
  • Hwy 3: Clear
  • Hwy 36: Clear
  • Hwy 96: According to Caltrans, “SR 96 is reduced to one lane with traffic control at Cade Mountain (Siskiyou CO) due to a slip-out. Motorists should expect delay. Conditions subject to change.”
  • Hwy 101: Clear
  • Hwy 199: Clear
  • Hwy 254 (Avenue of the Giants): Clear
  • HWY 299: Mostly clear. However, the large slide at Big French Creek is still blocking east/west travel. (See here for more information.) As of 2:20 p.m., Caltrans tweeted, “SR 299 UPDATE: Route OPEN today between 4:30 pm and 6:30 pm for local traffic only. Due to weather, the route will be closed after 6:30 pm.”
