Traffic being routed around Evergreen Trailer Park due to man making threats

UPDATE: The roadway is now reopened to through traffic.

The California Highway Patrol has set up a detour on Highway 70 so that motorists can avoid the Evergreen Trailer Park just west of Quincy. A man is in one of the trailers at the park and reportedly making threats. The detour begins at Chandler Road West and ends at Barlow Road. CHP units are on scene conducting the traffic control. A CHP spokesman said that this is being done out of an abundance of caution.

The Plumas County Sheriff’s Office has been evacuating trailers in the park. The subject is known to sheriff’s personnel, and they are trying to converse with him. An officer on scene acknowledged that threats were made, but cannot share more details at this time.
