UPDATE ON THE CENTERVILLE ROAD REPAIR PROJECT

Butte County, Ca – Work started on the Centerville Road Storm Damage Repair Project during the third week of April 13, 2020.  The Contractor has completed construction of the Soldier Pile Wall, excavation into the adjoining hillside, and is now prepared to install underground drainage facilities on Wednesday, May 13, 2020.  To provide for the safety of the traveling public, it will be necessary to restrict access on Centerville Road for one day during the completion of this drainage work.

The Centerville roadway operation schedule for Wednesday, May 13, 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

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 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.
