Highway 70, about five miles west of the Highway 89 junction near Paxton, re-opened to one-way controlled traffic at 1:55 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.
One lane is open as workers try to clean up debris from a tractor-trailer that crashed at 10:10 a.m. According to the CHP, the big-rig was up-righted and moved to the side of the road.
The tractor-trailer, which was carrying scrap metal to Oakland, jack-knifed and rolled onto its side. The toppled big rig blocked both lanes of traffic and spread its cargo over the roadway.
Most people have heard of the Plumas County Fish and Game Commission, but many are not aware of what the commission does.
The commission’s goal is simple: to enhance the fish and wildlife in Plumas County.
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. alerts customers to be aware of a telephone scam demanding immediate payment for allegedly past due electricity bills. This scam appears to target both business and residential customers, including Spanish-speaking customers.
PG&E customers throughout the utility’s service area have reported receiving calls warning that their electric service will be disconnected unless they make immediate payment through a prepaid cash card, such as a PayPal or Green Dot card.
Voters in various pockets of Plumas County weighed in on tax measures and community services district boards in today’s election. All of the votes were by mail and county election officials hope to post the results just a few minutes after 8 p.m. tonight.
On the ballot were tax measures for the Peninsula Fire District and the Clio Public Utility District, as well as directors for the West Almanor and the Plumas Eureka community services districts.
Results will be posted here when they become available.
