Highway 99 Re-Opens As Bridge Replacement Project Wraps Up

Highway 99 in Tehama County is once again open to through traffic after the replacement of a 100-year-old bridge near Los Molinos. The highway re-opened Friday at the Champlain Slough Bridge after a $7.5 Million project that required a 45 day complete closure of the highway which forced a detour of all traffic onto South Avenue in Corning in order to reach Interstate 5. The project was completed on time and on budget.
