Butte County, Ca – Work started on the Centerville Road Storm Damage Repair Project during the week of April 13, 2020.  The Contractor initiated construction of the Soldier Pile Wall during the week of April 20, 2020.  This work will continue during the week of April 27th.  For three days during the week of April 27, the amount of heavy equipment necessary to accomplish the drilling work and concrete pumping will require restricted access on Centerville Road.  Under the contract terms, the Contractor is allowed no more than 12 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, April 27, is planned as follows:

 

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

1pm to 3pm                                    Roadway closed to all traffic

3pm 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 put in place to accommodate emergency vehicle traffic such as CHP, Fire, EMS 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.
