Oroville Calif.—Repairs are set to start as early as Tuesday morning on the eroding train trestle on Myers Street in Oroville.

The trestle is stuffed with bags of cement as a temporary fix.

The problem was reported to Union Pacific in late February and some initial erosion and mitigation work was done.

A crew was starting to work on a more permanent repair, but were called away to work on a trestle in Marysville.

The crew that was pulled away is scheduled to return to Oroville Tuesday.

The repairs should be completed in the next week or two.

A spokesperson from the Railroad said the Oroville trestle is structurally sound and safe.
