TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - The Tehama County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to start taking bids to replace the Jellys Ferry Bridge.
Action News Now spoke with Tehama County Public Works Director Tim Mcsorely who said in two years, they are hoping to have a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the bridge.
In August of 2018, the Jellys Ferry Bridge closed and has not reopened since.
Mcsorely said that Cal Trans released a report deeming the bridge unsafe for vehicle traffic.
The project would cost around $46 million to demolish and rebuild the bridge.
Mcsorely said that the cost will come from state and federal funding.
