UPDATE, 1:47 p.m.: That did not take long. The Oregon Department of Transportation shows Highway 199 as being open. Resume talking about Voodoo Donuts.

Caltrans‘ Facebook admins alert us that U.S. 199, the main route taken by Humboldters looking to get to Portland, is closed just south of Cave Junction, Oregon after an accident involving a now-leaking propane truck and now-downed power lines. The Oregon Department of Transportation’s TripCheck map confirms that all lanes are currently closed and they warn that drivers should “use an alternate route.” They note that a detour is available (see below).
Stay tuned to TripCheck for updates.
