UPDATE 10:20 a.m.: Highway 36 is open to one-way controlled traffic.


Original Post: Highway 36 is closed … again.

The roadway is closed in both directions just east of Carlotta, between Swimmer’s Delight and the Van Duzen River Bridge, due to slide removal. Our friends at Caltrans District 1 are hoping to clear the roadway by tomorrow morning.

Highway 36 remains open west of Grizzly Creek Redwoods State Park. “For safety concerns, the section of roadway will only be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily and only one vehicle will be allowed through the slide area at a time,” according to Caltrans. “Because this is a dynamic situation, this is subject to change. Motorists can anticipate delays of up to 30 minutes or longer if necessary.”

Keep an eye on Caltrans Quickmap or the Caltrans District 1 Facebook page for current road conditions. We’ll update when we know more.
