Portion of Highway 74 Closed for 2 Weeks Due to Road Damage

A portion of California State Route 74 will be closed for two weeks due to road damage starting Wednesday, according to the California Department of Transportation.

A geotechnical assessment was conducted on a dip in the highway Wednesday after people started noticing it Tuesday, said Jocelyn Whitfield of Caltrans. She noted the pavement is cracking and needs to be shored up.

Due to the closure, drivers will not be able to pass a spot about a half mile east of Gibby Road, Whitfield said.

The road is an important commuting route between Orange and Riverside counties.
