Calaveras County, CA — The wicked weather hitting the Mother Lode has brought problems for motorists on Calaveras County roadways.
The CHP reports a “giant” pothole on O’Byrnes Ferry Road at Reeds Turnpike. Road crews are posting signs at the site.
A sinkhole was reported in the middle of Pool Station Road off Highway 4 near Angels Camp. The CHP indicates that road crews were called to the scene. According to a local resident and eyewitness, the incident is located on southbound Pool Station, about one mile north of the highway. A manned Caltrans truck with emergency lights on is blocking traffic away from what has been described as one square-foot of missing or possibly lifted asphalt.
Additionally, a downed tree and wires are blocking Sheep Ranch Road by Mountain Ranch Road near the Forestry Fire Station in Mountain Ranch.
The CHP asks motorists to slow down and use caution in those areas while reminding drivers to also make sure their headlights are turned on.
