Tamarack Fire Road Re-openings Announced
ALPINE COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and the
California Highway Patrol (CHP) plan to reopen State Routes 4 and 89 in Alpine County
to through-traffic only at 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 28, 2021.
There will be no access to the United States Forest Service (USFS) lands.
Be advised there is still firefighting work being done in many areas. Best to avoid the
area, but if you must travel, use caution and reduce speeds on roadways as firefighting
vehicles will also be sharing the road.
Additionally, utility companies will work to restore services and repair damaged
equipment. These repairs may require road closures up to 2 hours and without notice.
These repairs are scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., beginning Saturday, July 31, through Monday, August 2, 2021.
