Old Downieville Highway closure next week

NEVADA CITY, Calif. March 17, 2017 – Portions of Old Downieville Highway are tentatively scheduled for closure on March 20-21 to all thru traffic including vehicle, bicycle and foot traffic due to tree falling on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) properties in that area. The proposed work and road closures may be rescheduled due to the potential for inclement weather.

Road Closed signage and barricades will be erected during the closure, and County staff will direct traffic away from this area to maintain adequate safety while this work is being performed.
