Caltrans would like to thank the people of Trinity and Humboldt counties for their continued patience as we work to secure safe passage along State Route 299w at Big French Creek Road. The contractor and Caltrans staff are still working toward opening the detour to one-way-traffic control the WEEK of January 15, 2017. However, due to the amount of severe weather we have been experiencing, we realize this is a day-to-day operation and we cannot guarantee an exact date at this time.


Our contractor and crews can only work when their safety is not compromised. We assure you both Caltrans and Steve Manning Construction, Inc. are fully aware of the inconvenience this closure has created. We are working as quickly as we can to finish up the temporary detour. As soon as is safe to do so, we will open the detour to one-way controlled traffic and let the public know.


Please feel free to keep in touch with our Public Information Office. You can reach them by email D2PIO@dot.ca.gov, by phone, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at (530)225-3426 or call our 24 hour hotline at (530) 225-3452 for current updates on this project.


Again, we thank you all for your patience as we finish up this emergency project.
