LOS MOLINOS, Calif. - Caltrans District 2 will be holding a public open house at the Tehama County Veterans Memorial building to discuss the upcoming replacement of Champlin Slough Bridge on Highway 99.

The public house will be at 7980 Sherwood Boulevard in Los Molinos from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2.

Representatives from Caltrans will be on hand to offer information and answer questions about the upcoming project to replace the Champlin Slough Bridge located on State Route 99 approximately 3 miles south of Los Molinos.

Construction on the approximately $4.4 million project is slated to begin in the summer of 2022. During that time, SR 99 will be closed just north and south of the construction area, and a detour around the construction zone will be in place and for two to three months, Caltrans said.

The closure will likely impact residents living along SR 99 and drivers traveling between Chico and Red Bluff.

The new bridge will be constructed using Accelerated Bridge Construction technologies to reduce the amount of time needed to implement road closures.

The Champlin Slough Bridge, originally constructed in 1918, is one of the last remaining pre World War I structures still in service along SR 99 in Tehama County, Caltrans said. This project will replace the 100+-year-old bridge with a new bridge meeting current standards.

This project is made possible entirely with funds from Senate Bill 1. Through Senate Bill 1, Caltrans has committed to repair or replace 17,000 miles of pavement, 7,700 traffic signals, signs, and sensors, 55,000 culverts and drains, and 500 bridges by 2027, Caltrans said.
