BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - As of Thursday, Honey Run Covered Bridge Association has raised $100,000 toward its rebuild fund.

In an update on the group's Facebook page, it announced that it raised the money in five weeks. 

Approzimately $46,000 was raised from Rebuild HRCB fundraisers and $54,000 was raised in direct donations to the HRBCA. 

The association's goal is to raise $500,000 which puts them at about a fifth of the way there. 

The association answered frequently asked questions on its Facebook page regarding the bridge, including questions about when the bridge will be rebuilt. 

Right now, there is not an officially engineered design created for the rebuilding of the bridge, however, plans at this point consist of recreating the original blueprints. 

Estimates for the cost of the bridge are around $1 million to $3.5 million. Part of that cost will be covered by grant money.

The weather will be pulling a 180 as we head into the evening hours and kick off our work week. A north wind will be taking hold, bringing gusty conditions and increased fire danger to the valley, foothills, and the Sierra Mountains. Gusts between 25-35mph are possible from late this evening through Monday night for the valley while the foothills and the Sierra will continue to see the windy conditions through Tuesday morning. This has prompted a Red Flag Warning for the Valley 11pm tonight through 8pm Monday while the Sierra and Foothills will last through Tuesday morning.
