REDS MEADOW VALLEY ROAD CLOSED

REDS MEADOW VALLEY ROAD CLOSED

The Reds Meadow  Valley Road is closed due to two mudslides, on substantial, which occurred late Sunday afternoon. The area received it’s first significant rain after a long dry summer. Several visitors needed to be assisted  out of the Reds Meadow Area.

The road will remain closed while the slides and the condition of the road are assessed. Crews will also need to complete hazard tree work along the road. Some of this work was already planned along the road due to tree mortality issues. However, hazard trees near the mudslides will need to be prioritized for safety along the road corridor.

At this time, there is not an estimate for when the road will re-open. Visitors are advised to plan alternate itineraries.
