Champion Mine Road and Old Downieville Highway closures

Portions of Champion Mine Road and Old Downieville Highway will be closed Monday and Tuesday to all through traffic including vehicle, bicycle and foot traffic due to tree falling on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) properties in that area.

Nevada County Department of Public Works has signs posted on Old Downieville Highway before American Hill Road and again on Old Downieville Highway just past the meeting of Monroe Street and Wyoming Road. Champion Mine Road has signs posted at the intersection of Newtown Road.

This project is in conjunction with the Fire Safe Council, Bureau of Land Management and Nevada County.
