Lake Almanor, Calif.-- A month-long closure of Highway 89 at Lake Almanor is underway.

CalTrans is replacing the Lake Almanor Spillway Bridge. The existing bridge will be demolished as crews prepare to build a new one. Highway 89 will be closed in the area until a detour is built onto the spillway.

Traffic coming from the south is being diverted onto Highway 147. Highway 89 is closed 12 miles south of Highway 36. Drivers coming from the north will still be able to access west-shore campgrounds.

The $9 Million-dollar project is expected to be completed by mid-November.
