Big Creek Road near Bucks Lake now open
Big Creek Road, near Bucks Lake, is now open until snow forces closure for the winter. A slip-out a few years ago caused road realignment away from the top of the bank. The Federal Highway Administration awarded a contract for a retaining wall, drainage improvements and guardrail so the road could be returned to its original alignment.

The completed wall is a wire-and-earth wall called a “mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall.” Photo courtesy Plumas County Public Works
