BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - FEMA has approved $3.4 million in funding to repair a one-mile stretch of road near Centerville Road to Honey Run Road. 

County Public Works Director Dennis Schmidt said that the section of road above the covered bridge was destroyed in 2017. 

The environmental approval is in place, now the county just needs to squire a small amount of right-of-way from a private landowner. 

Depending on how the negotiations go, Schmidt is cautiously optimistic the work can be completed before the rainy season. 

However, last month's storms wiped out part of Centerville Road near Nimshew, and that repair process is just beginning.
