Highway 50 collapses near Bridal Veil Falls

(KRON) — Eastbound Highway 50 at Bridal Veil Falls near Pollock Pines has collapsed.

The video from the CHP Placerville office shows a sinkhole under one lane and the hillside which holds the highway in place is giving way.


As of Wednesday morning the CHP reports one lane in each direction is now open.

Highway 50 has been closed in places due to mudslides throughout February. Caltrans was worried about this particular section of 50, barricades where already on the roadway where collapsed occurred.
