Caltrans Mobilizing To Fix New Slip-Out On Highway 26

A new slip-out was recently discovered on Highway 26 in Amador County approximately 1.5 miles from the North Fork Mokelumne River. Caltrans is working to fix this new slip-out to protect the road from further damage and maintain access for communities in northern Calaveras County such as West Point and Wilseyville. Those communities have been cut-off, from storm damage, to Highway 26 closer to Glencoe that occurred during the severe storm on February 14th, and is a high priority to keep this segment of road open. Engineers from Caltrans were on scene mapping out a plan to stabilize and restore the roadway so repairs can be made as quickly as possible. One-way traffic control is in effect with no estimate at this time for how long the repairs will take. With more rain in the forecast over the next few days, Caltrans is encouraging drivers to be prepared for winter driving conditions.
