We send this email to communicate the situation on Mines Road. As you are likely aware, Mines Road suffered significant storm damage resulting in drainage culvert washouts at Post Mile 26.5 and 27. The road is currently closed. The other options for travel to and from the Valley are Del Puerto Canyon Road to Patterson or over Mt. Hamilton Road to San Jose. We are aware that Del Puerto Canyon Rd has also been impacted by the recent storms but is currently open. We are also aware that access over Mt. Hamilton is difficult and long. However, until we can repair Mines Rd these are the only options. For additional information on County Road closures please go to https://countyroads.sccgov.org/roads-traffic-info/road-closures

We have inspected the damages to Mines Road and have engaged a contractor to develop a plan for repair. We don’t currently have an estimate for when the road will reopen, but we will but will continue to keep you informed.
