Butte County road crews work to fix roads after flooding

Tuesday night’s flooding in Butte County continues to give county road crews a headache. Some roads and bridges are still closed.

Days later, evidence remains from the butte county flooding. On Friday, crews are out opening and fixing roads.

Some roads are passable, but other roads and bridges are washed out. Butte County highway maintenance workers say they have never seen flooding this bad.

"We've been monitoring and shutting down roads. Now we are going around looking to open some roads up to local traffic only," said Don Adams, Butte County Highway Superintendent.

Ranchers were also affected by the storm.

"It tore out lots of fences, really hurt the hay crop for this year, lots of damage," said Curt Westland, a rancher.

County crews are focusing their attention on opening Camp Crook Road. It could be open within the next few days. Meantime, Highway 73 from the junction of Highway 212 to the junction of Highway 20 in Perkins County is open.
