Starting Friday, Aug. 30, Highway 74 will be open 24/7 with the pilot car. Caltrans expects to fully open the road with major projects completed by late September to early October. At that point, there will be some flagging during the daytime work hours for smaller projects.

Starting Nov. 1, Highway 243 will be open with some form of traffic control. It is not clear as to what that will be at this time, but there will be access starting Nov. 1.
