TRINITY COUNTY, Calif. - Parts of State Route 36 are closed due to weather conditions, including active rock and mudslides.

According to Caltrans District 2, SR 36 is closed three miles west of Forest Glen due to an active rock and mudslide above the roadway. 

The road will remain closed until Caltrans and the contractor have had time to evaluate the slide area. There is no estimated time that the road will reopen. 

Additionally, there is one-way traffic control in place one mile east of Dubakella Mountain in Trinity County due to a roadway slip out. Caltrans is advising motorists to expect delays. 

Highway 299 can be used as an alternative route, however, there are two areas on that highway between Helena and Big Bar that also have active rock slides and are under one-way traffic control.
