Oro Quincy Highway Closure at Mountain House

Oro Quincy Highway above Mountain House is still closed and impassable due to storm damage in early 2017. The road was inadequately designed 13 years ago by the Federal Highways Administration and failed during the recent storms. The County took possession of the road after construction, and is now required to perform the repairs. The Federal Emergency Relief program must fund the repairs, and the County is waiting on this money from the federal government before repairs can begin.
