Unhappy Drivers West of Happy Camp

Drivers traveling west of Yreka will need an alternate plan due to a recurring slide. Cal-Trans has said Highway 96 will be closed at least through Wednesday about 8 miles west of Happy Camp. The same slide closed the highway Friday night and again Saturday night. Maintenance crews cleared about 200 cubic yards of material on Sunday, but Cal-Trans says that as long as the rain keeps falling the debris will continue sliding down onto the road. There is no reasonable detour in the area.
