Landslide Closes Down 299 in Trinity County

Posted By on Sat, Dec 29, 2018 at 10:35 AM

State Route 299 remained closed this morning after a landslide came down on the roadway around 7:45 p.m. the night before about 3 miles west of Junction City in Trinity County.

About 9 a.m., Caltrans reported that “the slide was still active” and there was “no ETA for opening.” Message signs had been turned on near Willow Creek to warn of the closure, but a request went out this morning to extend the alert out to U.S. Highway 101.

Rocks, mud, and a tree crossed the road last night between Helena and Junction City in Trinity County making it “impassible,” according to updates on the CHP Traffic Incident Information Page, which reported at 5:21 a.m. that the road will possibly be open “in the next couple hours.”
