The U.S. Highway Patrol has closed Highway 1 in the North Coast Mountains as the region struggles to contain wildfires burning in the foothills and valleys of the California Coast Range.
The closure is a precautionary measure due to the ongoing fire in the region.
The UH Pembroke-Pine National Forest closed Highway 31 and Highway 25, near the town of Bodega, just south of Bakersfield, for the past several days due to a high-risk fire in northern California.
The fire is still burning.
The closures are expected to last until late Monday.
The closure is not expected to impact interstate traffic.
The U.K. and France have also taken the lead in shutting down major roads in the United Kingdom, the U.N. said Friday.
The British National Fire Authority has closed three roads in London, as well as the Chiltern National Park, for several days.
The highway system is under lockdown for about three hours Friday night and into Saturday morning, the last of the three phases of highway closure that have been in place since Hurricane Maria swept through the Caribbean last week.
The closure of highways 3 and 4 in New Orleans and Louisiana City will end the two-day period, according to the Department of Transportation.
The Louisiana Toll Road in New Orlean, the Louisiana State Highway System, the Port of New Orleans, the National Guard, and the U.S. Coast Guard are all under a six-day curfew.
The highway system was closed during Hurricane Harvey, which caused widespread flooding in the region.
The storm knocked out power to nearly 3 million people and caused the deaths of more than 60,000 people, according a recent study.
Two of the country’s most congested highways are now closed in California following a wildfire that swept through the state earlier this month.
California Highway 1 reopened on Thursday, and Highway 18 reopened earlier this week, the Associated Press reported.
The highway is the most traveled in the country, and is the countrys most popular.
The two highways, which are in a rural area near Sacramento, are part of the Highway 18 system, which runs from Los Angeles to San Diego and from Sacramento to San Francisco.
The two highways have been under control since December, when wildfires burned through parts of the system.
The closure of Highway 18 comes as the state prepares to spend $1 billion to improve the state’s highways, according to the AP.
The money will come from a combination of tolls and federal funding, and the state is also expected to spend some of the money on other infrastructure improvements.
