MARIPOSA — With portions of Highway 140 closed for public safety during the current storms, Caltrans says crews are working tirelessly to patrol, clear, maintain, and eventually re-open the roadway in the Ferguson Fire burn scar in Mariposa County.
Midpines Maintenance Supervisor Jess McCoy provided these photos of his crew at work as mud, rocks, vegetation and other materials cover the road.
The SR-140 closure — which begins near Midpines at Bear Creek and continues up to Foresta Road in El Portal — has no estimated time of opening. That is dependent on the weather and any resulting mudslides.
