Caltrans reported Monday that State Route 202 closed on Sunday night at 9:49 p.m. due to a mudslide across the roadway that was four to five feet deep and 200 feet across. A vehicle was trapped in the middle of the mudflow. Caltrans crews were on site last night to detour traffic. Clean up will begin today.
SR 202 will remain closed until the roadway can be cleared of all mud and rocks.
