Update - September 21, 2021 - 3:29pm: 

The MoTI geotechnical team has determined that the Red Bluff area is safe for crews to begin cleaning the debris off of the highway.

The temporary bridge has arrived at the work zone near London Bridge. Crews from Laxgalts’ap and MoTI are prepping both sides of the channel for the bridge placement.

MoTI anticipates that the highway will reopen early this evening but can not provide a firm time at this point.

 

Update - September 21, 2021 - 11:20am:

The overland flooding in the work zone near London Bridge has caused a collapse of a portion of the concrete block wall in the area. Approximately 40 ft. of wall has failed. Water is currently running through the breached portion of the wall across the road and has cut a deep channel in the road surface.

MoTI is trying to source a temporary bridge that can be placed over the channel. At this point there is no timeline available for reopening the highway in that area.

Crews are awaiting arrival of helicopter to do aerial assessment of the Red Bluff area.
