Hwy 299 Reopens to One Way Traffic
Caltrans has reopened Hwy 299 to one-way controlled traffic after it was closed due to a wildfire on August 30.
Christopher Woodward, Public Information Officer for Caltrans District 2 says that motorists should expect delays of up to 45 minutes.
“There are still a lot of crews and equipment in the area,” he explained. He urges drivers to travel slowly and be alert for debris. “The highway is still subject to closure,” he said, as hazardous debris could roll onto the road.
One-way continuous traffic control will be in effect “until something changes,” he said, from one mile east of the Helena bridge to near the Junction City campground which is a little west of Junction City.
