The highway will have 24/7 one-way traffic control from three miles west of Belden to two miles west of Belden. You can plan for 10-15 minute delays when traveling through the area. Caltrans will continue rehabilitation of the highway as guardrails and culvert drainage were both damaged from the June 12 storm, and the hillside will need to be further secured. Caltrans and contractors projected to have the highway opened by the 4 th of July weekend, but have successfully met that goal ahead of schedule.
