Clark Road In Butte County To Be Closed For 3 Weekends

Aug 8, 2017

Expect more challenges getting on and off the Paradise Ridge over the next three weekends. Caltrans will be entirely closing a section of Clark Road, State Route 191, as construction work reaches a critical phase.  

The roadway, connecting the unincorporated Butte Valley area with Paradise will be closed from south of Airport Road to just over a mile north of Durham-Pentz Road.  

Caltrans is spending $29 million to remove curves, reduce steep grades and widen shoulders.  

Traffic will be detoured beginning 11 p.m. Friday. The road is expected to reopen Monday morning at 6 a.m.  

Similar closures are scheduled for the following two weekends.
