Over the weekend, the large slide location on State Route 70 in the Feather River Canyon near the Butte/Plumas County Line became active again. Due to this new activity, contractor operations have been suspended for safety pending further site assessment and recommendations. Continued debris removal from the area is planned upcoming when safe to resume these operations.
With this recent change in slide activity, the anticipated opening of State Route 70 to one-lane of traffic with 24/7 traffic control is currently being reassessed and reevaluated. More information will be provided in an upcoming update.
Caltrans and contractor thank the traveling public and locals for their continued patience during this slide closure. 24/7 roadway conditions are available via QuickMap or by calling 1-800-427-7623.
