Butte County Road Closures

Road Closures – County Maintained Only

Road closures and conditions related to an active incident are not included on this page. While the Department makes every effort to provide accurate information, the Department is not responsible for any omissions that may occur.

This list is for County maintained roads only, and does NOT include any roads maintained by other municipalities.

Road Closures:

Paradise – Honey Run Road

As safety measure, Honey Run Road, from 2.2 miles above the Covered Bridge to Honey View Terrace in the Town of Paradise will be closed, due to the potential for downed trees, debris flow and rock fall onto the roadway, as a result of the Honey Fire burn scar.

Magalia – Powellton Road

To preserve the integrity of this roadway, the roadway will remain under winter closure, from 2.7 miles above the lower Powellton/Skyway intersection, to the upper Powellton/Skyway Intersection. Crews have spent hundreds of hours installing water quality improvements to this critical roadway, and unauthorized 4×4 traffic on this fresh grading work would be detrimental to roadway and water quality in the Butte Creek Basin.

Concow – Concow Road

To preserve the integrity of this roadway, the roadway will remain under winter closure, from Ragdump, north to the end of county maintained mileage. This roadway was badly damaged in the winter of 2017, and while crews were able to reopen to emergency traffic, much additional work needs to be done to stabilize the roadway surface to prevent further damage and environmental degradation. and clogged culverts and waterways. Residents should monitor their surroundings, and be prepared to leave the area if necessary.

Residents are encouraged to prepare an emergency kit. View the Office of Emergency Management website for an emergency kit checklist or visit ready.gov/build-a-kit for suggestions.

Butte County is divided into four Road Maintenance Districts. Weather related road closures and warnings are posted from a list compiled by the Road Maintenance Division of the Butte County Department of Public Works. This page is periodically updated during storm events during normal working hours (M-F 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM).
