BASS LAKE – What appears to be a broken water main under Road 222 has closed traffic in the westbound lane between Little Denver Church and Recreation Point along the south shore of Bass Lake.
Just before 11 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17, a report came in of water bubbling up from under the roadway and causing the surface of the road to come apart.
Sheriff’s deputies and CHP are on scene at this hour directing traffic around the break.
An employee of the Bass Lake Water Company arrived at about midnight and reported that California Land Management is responsible for the problem and will be contacted.
If you are traveling along the south shore of the lake, be prepared for traffic control to be in place at this location.
We will update as new information is available.
