U.S. 199 TO SUSPEND 3-HOUR WEEKDAY CLOSURES AFTER OCT. 27:
Following solid progress responding to wildfire repairs along U.S. 199 near the Oregon border in Del Norte County, crews anticipate the last day of three-hour closures will be on Friday, Oct. 27. Saturday and Sunday will be the first days without traffic control since the fire started.
Work is still ongoing. Moving forward, travelers should expect up to one-hour delays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. Outside of those hours, delays should be minimal. In the event of possible Saturday work, we’ll give you a heads up here in advance.
U.S. 199 has been subject to an emergency wildfire response since August. So far, crews have remediated hazardous trees, damaged guardrail, and damaged signage. They’ve also installed elevated cable net drapery systems. Upcoming work includes remediating additional hazardous trees, installing more signage, and installing rock-fall catchment systems.
For your convenience, below you’ll find the three-hour weekday closure schedule planned to be suspended after 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 27:
