HWY 269 closed between Huron and HWY 198

Sunday, January 02, 2011

The California Highway Patrol has closed a portion of Highway 269 between Huron and Highway 198 in Fresno County because of major flooding on the roadway.

The roadway was closed at 10 a.m. Sunday morning when it became submerged in water from an overflowing nearby creek. A winter storm is expected to dump at least 1.5 inches of rain through Sunday night and flood watches have been issued for the Central Valley.

There was no estimate of when the highway would reopen to traffic.
