Highway 70 closures March 19-22 planned

Caltrans plans to resume a series of morning and afternoon closures this week (weather permitting) on an 11-mile stretch of State Highway 70 between Jarbo Gap and the Cresta area in the Feather River Canyon for emergency work related to the Camp Fire.

To ensure motorist and worker safety, the highway will be closed between Deadwood Road in the Jarbo Gap area and the Cresta area in the Feather River Canyon from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 19 through Friday, March 22. The roadway will be open to traffic from noon to 1 p.m. during that same time period.

Motorists are advised to use alternate routes.

Since November, Caltrans has been repairing damage caused by the Camp Fire. That work has included replacing guardrail and culverts, hydroseeding burn areas and removing hazardous trees along Highway 70 between Yankee Hill in Butte County and the Butte-Plumas county line.

The highway closure schedule is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials, and/or construction-related issues. Motorists are encouraged to “Be Work Zone Alert.” More information and updates on projects can be found at http://www.dot.ca.gov/d3/projects/ or on Twitter via @CaltransDist3 and on Facebook at CaltransDistrict3.
