Highway 154 reopened after being closed last week due to the Cave Fire.
Caltrans announced the roadway would open by Monday, but they pulled it off earlier than announced with the roadway officially reopening at 6:00 p.m. Sunday.
Massive guardrail repairs needed to be completed due to flames from the Cave Fire jumping the roadway.
Traffic control is expected to take place Monday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Motorists are expected to reduce speed from Painted Cave to San Antonio Creek Roads as Caltrans engineers assess the hillside.
The Cave Fire is expected to be fully contained by Wednesday this week. Read more about the Cave Fire here.
