Caltrans District 2 and J.F. Shea are preparing for blasting and scaling operations at the slide location on State Route 70 in the Feather River Canyon near the Butte/Plumas County Line. These operations are planned for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, November 23. Following these operations, debris removal from the area is planned when the area is deemed safe to do so. While there remains no concrete date for the reopening of one lane with 24/7 traffic control in the area, crews will continue working towards getting access in the area, weather and safety permitting.
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. Please contact the Caltrans District 2 Public Information Office at 530-225-3426 or by email with questions.
