Highway 70 reopens with traffic control

Road to nowhere: A large section of cliff broke loose in the serpentine section of the Feather River Canyon about a mile east of Rich Bar. The event took place at approximately 2:00 a.m. on Tues. Dec. 22 and immediately closed Highway 70 to through traffic. After Highway 70 was reopened to traffic, work continued as crews were blasting the larger rocks and stabilizing the slide area, possibly causing further delays.  Photo by Will Farris

Plumas County District Attorney Jeff Cunan announced Tuesday, Dec. 8, that he would not seek a third term in office.
