BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - SPSG Partners, a consortium of contractors who removed debris in Paradise after the Camp Fire, has donated $225,000 to the Honey Run Covered Bridge Association to help rebuild the Covered Bridge, the Honey Run Covered Bridge Association announced.

“Our industry partners in construction management understand the need for philanthropic gestures to support community outreach and promote construction. We have worked with many of these partners over the years since they employ our interns and graduates. The SPSG donation was extremely generous,” Chris Souder, volunteer bridge-rebuild Project Manager and Chair of the Chico State Department of Construction Management who helped arrange this donation said.

The total cost of the Covered Bridge rebuild is estimated to be $2.7 million. However, donated materials and labor are expected to considerably reduce this amount.

If sufficient funds are raised, construction is expected to begin in June 2020.

This donation will help cover costs of Phase I including the construction of new pillars and abutments.

Final details on ownership transfer of the Bridge from Butte County to the non-profit Honey Run Covered Bridge Association are still being completed.
