Road collapses in remote California after heavy rains

And suddenly the road collapsed in California.

A section of the 3rd highway between the settlements of Trinity Center and Coffee Creek (Trinity County) disappeared after the heavy rains that softened the ground on March 15, 2016.

Well too bad for those using the street. They will have to drive a 200-mile detour.

But if you have a four-wheel drive vehicle you can use the icy Trinity Mountain Road.

This will take up to eight weeks for traffic flow to be restored on State Route 3, with complete repair taking up to three months.

When the road collapsed, storms battered the region and soils were very saturated.
