For those of you who are considering a summer road trip to California, I thought that I would share some of the current conditions on some of the highways here. Y'all are no doubt aware that we had a v-e-r-y wet rainy season this year, with numerous locations recording in excess of 100 inches of precipitation from late November through early May. Highway 1 (north of San Francisco): There are a couple of closures right off US101 just north of the Golden Gate. There are a few other spots with one-way controlled traffic around Gualala and Jenner and in Mendocino County. Highway 1 (Central Coast): The highway is closed indefinitely south of Carmel Valley near Big Sur for bridge replacement. There is another closure further south at Ragged Point. Highway 49: One-way controlled traffic for slide removal about 9 miles north of Nevada City. In addition, storm clean up near the Yuba-Sierra County line may require a 20-30 minute delay. US50 near Pollock Pines is down to one lane in each direction because of repairs to a slip out. Interstate 80 near Kingvale is down to one lane for eastbound traffic--emergency repairs. Highway 96 (I know, not many charging locations on that road): Is closed 0900-1200 and again 1300-1600 hours weekdays near Weitchpec for storm damage. US101 has a number of spots north of Leggett and south of Crescent City that have one-way controlled traffic. Highway 120 is closed nights (1700 to 0700 the next day) west of the junction with SR49. Highway 147 (east shore of Lake Almanor): Daytime (0700-1900) closures from north of the junction with SR89 to the Plumas/Lassen County line. Highway 175: One way controlled traffic just east of Hopland off US101. Highway 299: Various locations east of Arcata and west of Weaverville are subject to one-way controlled traffic or 15-minute delays, depending upon time of day. The above conditions are expected to run through at least July 15, with some of them expected not to be complete until October or beyond. Ebbets Pass, Sonora Pass, Tioga Pass and the south entrance to Lassen Volcanic NP are still closed "for the winter." Estimated reopening is not known as of today. My guess is that by solstice all but Highway 89 will be open for the summer. Get the handy CalTrans "Quick Map" application for your smart phone to keep updated.
