The current steel truss bridge was built in 1915 and is nearly 100 years old. The main span is 160-feet long with two concrete approach structures of 140-feet and 60-feet long, which were rebuilt in 1931. The bridge approaches are narrow (10.5-feet) with no separation of vehicles from pedestrians. Average Daily Traffic is 280 (both directions, per 2009 traffic counts). The bridge is classified as structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.

Individuals who require special accommodations to attend this public meeting or if you have additional questions about this project, please contact the Transportation Division at (530) 621-5900.

The County cannot adequately address all issues without public input from those who are directly affected on a daily basis. Therefore, the public is encouraged to remain engaged throughout the process.

All materials and documents used during the public outreach as well new information and announcements as they become available are provided through the links below.
