A Mariposa County highway has re-opened following a nearly month-long closure for repairs, according to the California Department of Transportation.
Caltrans said it has completed repairs and opened both northbound and southbound Highway 49 from Bear Valley Road, to Highway 132 in Coulterville. According to a news release, the closure of the road began on Monday, April 29.
In addition to repairing three culverts and rebuilding part of the roadway, crews rebuilt roadside slopes and shoulders of Highway 49, that were shifting away from the highway in multiple locations. Caltrans said erosion control measures were also placed beneath the surface of the slopes.
