Update October 16, 2014
This Route-66 800 cache series is TEMPORAILY DISABLED due to severe thunderstorms that hit the eastern Mojave High Desert in September and washed out many portions of the Highway.
The storm damaged numerous segments of Route 66 (National Trails Highway), including a reported 40-plus bridges between Ludlow and Mountain Springs Roads. Some bridges have had their flow abutments washed out and will need new timber for support and flow alignment. A few bridges have received considerable damage.
Portions of Route 66, such as between Ludlow and Amboy, upon reopening will be posted with a maximum vehicle weight of only 3-tons. This allows personal vehicles but it restricts the popular Class C and larger Class A recreational vehicles, and buses.
According to the County's Department of Public Works, the stretch of road between the community of Cadiz and Mountain Springs Road is expected to remain closed for at least two months.
Currently, Amboy through Cadiz is being accessed by Kelbaker Road from the north and Amboy and Cadiz Roads from the south.
We are sorry for the inconvenience, but I guess Mother Nature wanted her own time on the Mother Road.
We will update this cache page, and re-enable them as soon as the roads reopen.
