Rockslide closes Highway 41 in Madera County

Local News

Highway 41 in Madera county is closed of a rockslide. 

Huge boulders are blocking the road near Rocky Cut.

There is no estimate when the road will reopen, but there are detours in place.

“Just driving up to the casino and there’s a roadblock. I kind of thought maybe there was an accident, but I can see why there’d be a rockslide now,” said driver Tiffany Fletcher.

“You can either go up through Raymond out of Madera, up Raymond Road – that’s a good road you can take the detour – it’s going to be 41 to Road 200 up 211,” said Caltrans maintenance supervisor Adam Wimberley.

The detour going northbound on Highway 41 is right on Road 145, left on road 211 and then left on Road 200. That should get drivers back on Highway 41.
