Caltrans Updates Slide Status on SR70


Caltrans has updated progress in the Feather River Canyon, where four slides closed the 50-mile stretch over a week ago. Although the route remains closed, Caltrans crews and Hat Creek construction continue to clear slide debris, including large boulders the size of cars near Cresta, the Shady Rest Area, and west of Rush Creek Road, between Twain and Belden.

Plans are to clear enough debris to get one-way traffic controls in place, though how soon that will happen is still unknown.
