Work continues on 70, no time estimate yet for reopening

Caltrans District 2 announced this morning, June 21, that the agency and the prime contractor, J.F. Shea Construction, Inc., continue to clear debris and create access on Highway 70 from just west of Rock Creek Dam to Belden following the slides/debris flows on June 12.

Highway  70 remains closed to through traffic between Jarbo Gap and the Greenville Wye. Access for local residents and businesses is allowed from both sides of the closure but there is no access through the affected area.

Caltrans is working to provide an estimated time of reopening to 24/7 one-way traffic control as soon as possible.
