Butte County, Ca – Work started on the Centerville Road Storm Damage Repair Project during the week of April 13, 2020.  The Contractor has completed drilling and placing piles to support the Soldier Pile Wall.  During the week of May 4th, the Contractor will be installing the concrete lagging between the piles, to complete the construction of the Soldier Pile Wall.  This wall will ultimately provide the necessary lateral support for the new roadway once it is constructed.

During the three day time period next week (Monday to Wednesday), the amount of heavy equipment necessary to accomplish the work will require restricted access on Centerville Road.  Under the contract terms, the Contractor is allowed no more than 12 total working days during the course of this project that they can close the roadway to all traffic for specific times of the day.


The roadway operation schedule for Monday, May 4, Tuesday, May 5 and Wednesday, May 6, 2020 is planned as follows:


Midnight to 8am                              Roadway open to all traffic, expect less than 15 minute delays

8am to 10am                                    Roadway closed to all traffic

10am to 10:30 am                           Road open to all traffic, expect less than 15 minute delays

10:30am to 12pm                            Roadway closed to all traffic

12pm to 1pm                                    Roadway open to all traffic, expect less than 15 minute delays

1pm to 2:30pm                                Roadway closed to all traffic

2:30pm to 3pm                                Roadway open to all traffic, expect less than 15 minute delays

3pm to 4:30pm                                Roadway closed to all traffic

4:30pm to midnight                        Roadway open to all traffic, expect less than 15 minute delays


The Contractor has placed a changeable message board sign near the intersection of Honey Run Road and Centerville Road, and will post updates to this schedule if there are planned changes.  Butte Creek Canyon residents, delivery/solid waste collection services, bicyclists and others with plans to travel into this area are encouraged to plan their schedules around these planned closures, to minimize the congestion, and allow the Contractor the opportunity to get this critical work completed.


Plans have been made to accommodate emergency vehicle traffic such as Fire, EMS, CHP and Butte County Sheriff’s Office, and every effort will be made to allow emergency traffic through the work zone with a minimal amount of delay.


All work is being performed in strict conformance with State and Local COVID-19 social distancing rules and hand sanitization guidelines, with the goal of keeping the County’s critical infrastructure projects moving forward.
