BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Camp Fire has triggered an emergency road project by Caltrans near Butte College.

Construction of a temporary roundabout is being put in at State Highway 191 and Durham-Pentz Road.

Caltrans public information officer Gilbert Mohtes-Chan said a number of trucks are expected to travel this roadway from Paradise during the debris removal process, and this project should help.

Mohtes-Chan said Caltrans is hoping to get federal funding reimbursement for this emergency project.

Until construction is complete, there will be one-way traffic control.

Caltrans is hoping to finish the project by Sunday, Feb. 24.
