Public Hearing on Weight Limit Planned
FALL RIVER MILLS — The Shasta County Public Works Department
plans to have a public hearing about their plan to re-place a
weight restriction of 3-tons on the Spring Creek Bridge in
The weight limit was 3-tons and it currently bears signs saying
A spokesman for Public Works says that Cal Trans, who does the
bridge inspections coded the weight limit in wrong. The County
caught the error, had Cal Trans re-inspect the bridge and the
results showed that 3-tons was the maximum safe weight for that
The spokesman says Public Works does want a public hearing
before officially putting that restriction in force.
The hearing will be at 1 p.m., November 5 at the Veterans Hall
in Fall River Mills.
