Highway 140 open limited hours beginning July 31, 2006



This information has been superceded. For the latest information that I have and links on how to get better info yourself, see my Highway 140 updates.

It's official! CalTrans has announced that the road will open on a limited basis on July 31. There are a lot of restrictions:

  • Traffic limited to vehicles 28 feet in length or shorter
  • Morning caravans led by pilot cars will leave westbound from the Foresta Bridge at 5:30am and travelers must be in line by 5:30am to be allowed to join this caravan. Eastbound traffic will leave from five miles east of Briceburg at 6:00am and, again, to be in that caravan, you must be in line at 6:00am
  • Evening will leave from Forest Bridge at 6:00pm and will flow in alternate directions until the final westbound caravan leaves at 7:30pm. Travellers must be in line by 7:30pm to catch that last caravan.
  • Speed limit will be set at 15 miles per hour
  • Closed to bicyclists and pedestrians
