Caltrans Closes Rest Stops for the Season

Five regional rest areas will close this month for the winter season. Caltrans has announced that starting October 31st, within District 2, three Plumas county rest stops will be closed until May 1st.

Those include

  • Massack Rest Area on State Route 70, 6.5 miles east of Quincy
  • Lester T. Davis Rest Area on State Route 70, 3 miles east of Portola
  • Lake Almanor Rest Area on State Route 36, 4.3 miles east of Chester

The SR 44 Shingletown and HWY 299 Hillcrest rest areas will also close.

Plan your travel with these closures in place as crews turn their focus to roadway conditions and prevent plumbing breaks through winter due to snow and ice at these locations.
