Highway 70 Faces Third Closure This Week due to Landslides


Another slide shut down Highway 70 early this morning. Caltrans announced a slide shut down the roadway around 4 am.
This is the 3rd time the highway has closed within the week due to the crumbling hillside.

Another impactful winter storm is expected to hit the region over the weekend, bringing the potential for more heavy rains and snow. Be prepared for continued challenges to your Highway 70 travel.

Caltrans says there is no expected time for the highway to open.
