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

Road closures and conditions related to an active incident are not included on this page. For current information related to the Ponderosa Fire, follow updates from CAL FIRE and CAL FIRE / Butte County Fire online and on twitter. 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.
