The Plumas County Public Works is proposing some major maintenance work for the bridge on the Beckwourth-Greenville Road that spans Lights Creek. The bridge was constructed in 1947. A Caltrans Bridge Report dated July 6th, 1999 recommended debris removal, cleaning, painting, deck sealing and replacement of two missing rivets.Various examinations conducted from that time up through 2009 show minor issues that need to be addressed.
The proposed project will consist of the following maintenance work;
- Painting the steel truss
- Treating the bridge deck
- Cleaning the abutment seats
- Resetting the roller bearings
- Providing rock slope protection
Located on the
Beckwourth-Greenville Road near the junction of
Diamond Mountain Road, the present bridge is the longest lasting of the
four bridges that have spanned Lights Creek at this point.
