Update: Litterbugs Have Closed Old Priest Grade
Update at 10:30 a.m.: Tuolumne County Roads Department has updated that the closure of Old Priest Grade in the Groveland area for garbage cleanup scheduled for today has been trashed. Road officials relay to Clarke Broadcasting, “The event was canceled due to conflicts with closing OPG while Caltrans is working on Hwy 120.”
The trash pickup event will be slated for a later date, yet to be determined.
Original post at 540 a.m.: Groveland, CA – Plastic bottles and bags, along with aluminum cans are just some of the trash found littered along Mother Lode roadways.
Today, Tuolumne County road crews will be picking up the garbage left by litterbugs along Old Priest Grade. That will prompt the closure of the roadway as crews scour the road’s shoulder to clean up the debris.
The hours of operation will be from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Luckily, motorists do not have to take a lengthy detour adding to their morning commute time, as the nearby New Priest Grade/Highway 120 can easily be taken instead.
