Cleanup Continues Sunday From Flooding And Storm Impacts

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Most of the roads that were closed on Saturday due to flooding have reopened, according the CHP.

There are still some side streets, including around downtown Sonora, which remain closed. Road crews are out clearing drains again today ahead of additional rain projected throughout this week.

There is still a hard closure of Highway 120 from Hardin Flat Road to South Fork Tuolumne Bridge due to a road washout, according to Caltrans.
