Road Closures
Butte County is divided into four Road Maintenance Districts. Weather related road closures and warnings are posted from a list compiled by the Road Maintenance Division of the Butte County Department of Public Works. This page is periodically updated during storm events during normal working hours (M-F 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM).
Road Closures - County Maintained Only

Roads may be flooded and not on this list due to localized conditions. While the Department makes every effort to provide accurate information, the Department is not responsible for any omissions that may occur. 

This list is for County maintained roads only, and does NOT include any roads maintained by other municipalities.
