Caltrans Plans Last Major Closure of HWY 70 for the Season


In continuing efforts to complete storm and winter slide damage to Highway 70, Caltrans District 2 has announced a closure of the highway today.

In the Cresta area of the Feather River Canyon in Butte County, a stretch of 70 will be closed from 8-11 a.m.

Caltrans crews will be off-loading bridge girders.

The district does confirm that this will be the last extended closure of the construction season as rock blasting operations are finished.
