Original post at 8:50 a.m.: Sonora, CA — The Tuolumne County Roads division is closing Sims Road so that storm related damage can be repaired.
The road was closed for several days due to flooding, and briefly reopened for a period of time yesterday. The new closure is running from Highway 49 to Highway 120. It is unclear how long Sims Road will be closed, according to county officials, but you will need to avoid the area. There is no marked detour in place.
