A mudslide above the Spanish Creek Bridge construction area Sunday night, Oct. 9, caused the anchor rods supporting a power pole to slip, dropping transmission lines across Highway 70, seven miles north of Quincy. The road was closed and power was out to the greater Quincy area until Pacific Gas and Electric crews could get to the scene and cut the lines. Power was restored in about an hour, and the highway reopened to one-way controlled traffic by 7:30 a.m. Monday.

As of Monday afternoon, PG&E representative Paul Moreno said, “We are awaiting Caltrans making the slide safe and are developing a plan of restoration to either repair or replace the poles and wires. Once we can get a good look at the actual pole and ground area we can then finalize our restoration plans.”
Motorists are advised to call 800-427-ROAD before traveling to get the latest road condition updates, or visit the following Caltrans website:
