BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A Butte County crown jewel, lost in the Camp Fire, is on track to rise from the ashes.

Monday, Sept. 23 was the big day for the Honey Run Covered Bridge in Butte Creek Canyon. Quincy Engineering Firm started drilling to find bedrock, so they could build the foundation for the new bridge.

The original bridge was built in 1886 and was built on rock. The bridge stretched 240 feet across Butte Creek.

The president of the Honey Run Covered Bridge Association, Robert Catalano said he's thrilled to see work finally begin.

"I'm really excited," Catalano said. "We've been doing a lot of gut work getting the park cleaned up, we had to go through that, we had to go through some fundraising, and the whole rebuild project which actually started with the first meeting of our board in November deciding to go forth, this is the ultimate thing to happen."

Catalano said he hopes to have the superstructure across the water by the end of next summer. The bridge cover would take another year.

The estimated cost to rebuild the bridge is $2.7 million.
