[ARCHIVED] Public Works Partners with Fire Safe Council to Reduce Fuel Hazards Along County Roads

In order to increase the effectiveness of vegetation management alongside County roads, the Fire Safe Council of Nevada County is partnering with Nevada County Public Works to remove hazardous roadside vegetation from over 50 miles of County roads. The Fire Safe Council has applied for and been awarded a $200,000 grant from the California Fire Safe Council to augment roadside maintenance funds and provide educational opportunities for the community.

Roadside Vegetation Management Locations

  • Tyler Foote Road: between Sages Road and Cruzon Grade Road
  • North Bloomfield-Graniteville Road: from Highway 49 to the South Yuba River
  • McCourtney Road: from the fairgrounds to Lime Kiln Road
  • Lime Kiln Road: from McCourtney Road to Highway 49
  • La Barr Meadows Road: from the Grass Valley city limit to Dog Bar Road


Work Schedule

Work will begin on North Bloomfield-Graniteville Road, between Highway 49 and the Edwards Crossing bridge at the South Yuba River. North Bloomfield-Graniteville Road will be subject to traffic control for roadside vegetation management work from November 5th through November 30th, 2018 (not including Thanksgiving and the Friday after). The traffic control system may result in delays of up to 10 minutes intermittently between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday (weather permitting).


More Information

Please observe all traffic control signs as well as any instructions from onsite personnel. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience as we work to reduce fire danger in our community.
