New Butte Creek Bridge opens to Highway 99 traffic

Nov 6, 2014 1:36 PM by News Staff

The newly constructed $10 million Butte Creek Bridge in Chico opened to northbound Highway 99 traffic Thursday morning.

The new two-lane bridge replaces a 60-year-old structure and ends a seven-month detour onto a temporary bridge over Butte Creek, just north of Estates Drive.

Over the next month, construction crews will be working to remove concrete barriers on the southbound bridge and returning the southbound lanes to the original highway alignment.
