Per Brosz Engineering, Inc. 

During the course of our routine bridge inspection work in Butte County, we have encountered three structures which we feel require

immediate closure. All three of these structures are constructed of treated timber and all have histories of deterioration due to the age and type of materials used.


Bridge Structure # 10-300-304 – Experimental Farm Road

Bridge Structure # 10-306-310 – Yparilla Road

Bridge Structure # 10-334-360 – Palo Road


The Board of Butte County Commissioners closed the three bridges effective immediately on Tuesday, August 7, 2018.




Butte/Lawrence County bridge that runs over Redwater at the bottom of the hill of Wood Rd will be closed indefinitely.
