China Wells Road Bridge On The Bass Lake Ranger District Temporarily Closed

China Wells (6S017) road bridge located on the Bass Lake Ranger District closed to replace damaged deck components found during routine inspection

CLOVIS, CA., –  During our routine bridge inspections, the Sierra National Forest (SNF) bridge inspection team lead found that some deck components of the China Well Bridge were severely damaged.  Out of concern for public safety a need has been determined to close the bridge to all traffic until the deck can be repaired.

The estimated time for these repairs to take place is approximately three weeks. See attached map for a detour to the area.

If you have questions regarding this closure and the bridge please contact the SNF engineering department at (559)297-0706 extension 4842 or by email at antonio.cabera@usda.gov.
