Highway 199

We have just opened Highway 199 to through traffic.
There will be a controlled stop at the Collier Tunnel as the lights inside it are out and there is smoke.

Fires are still burning througout the area. Drive carefully.

Re: From Derek Eimer:

On the California side of the local mountains we set up traffic control early in the morning and brought in the various equipment and people to open Highway 199.

Re: From Derek Eimer:

Thanks Derek and Dave. This fire has crossed the mountains into the Cave Juction and O’Brien areas of southern Oregon and came down Highway 199 here in Del Norte County in Northern California. We at Caltrans have had Highway 199 closed to northbound traffic all day. The fire is burning on both side ...

Thanks for the heads up Derek and Craig. That looks like a monster fire. We had to use headlights and flashlights mid-day over here on Highway 199 because of the smoke and ash from this fire.

Be safe,
Mike

Re: The passing of a dear friend

I’m real sorry to hear this. Montine was a friend to all. What a pleasure it was to come into the New49ers store and be greeted by Montine.

Re: Amicus Brief on behalf of Small-scale Miners Submitted to U.S. Supreme Court!

Thanks for the efforts of all, you in particular Dave. I’m real optimistic with the new law firm presenting the case. I’d sure like to be doing some suction highbanking this summer.
