Vegetation Removal and Fire Fuel Management on Cohasset Road


Chico, Calif.--Butte County Public Works is performing fuel management along Cohasset Road, from Keefer Road in north Chico up to the intersection of Cohasset Road and Jack Rabbit Flats Road.  Work will be performed in the County right of way, and consists of the removal of brush and over-populated small trees, along with raising the canopy of the older established trees to achieve a shaded fuel break.

Motorists that travel these roadways should expect delays of up to 15 minutes. Work schedules will vary based on crew availability, but will generally start at 7:00 a.m. with work completed and roads opened back up to traffic by 3:00 p.m.

Work will continue as crews are available through March 28, 2020. During work hours, Cohasset Road will be restricted to a single lane of traffic, with flaggers stopping and directing traffic through the work zone.

The Butte County Public Works Department has been serving its residents since 1850, providing cost effective roadway maintenance services.  The Department maintains approximately 1,300 miles of roadways, over 500 bridges and drainage structures and more than 18,000 road signs.
