Columbia Traffic Delays
Columbia, CA — There is a project underway to enhance the entrance to Columbia State Historic Park.
PG&E crews will be burying the power lines in the area of Columbia State Historic Park. The work will limit traffic on Parrotts Ferry to one lane at Columbia Elementary School. Power lines will be buried from Columbia Elementary to South Gold Street.
Work began today and is expected to continue through Thursday, August 30 between the hours of 8:00am and 5:00pm.
Funding for the project comes from money set aside from customer’s bills as part of Rule 20A. A committee decides which undergrounding projects have the highest priority.
According to Department Director for CRA Roads Division, Duke York, “The project is to enhance the visual quality of the Historic Park and has been in the works for many years.” The project is expected to cost approximately 1.5 million.
There is also a project on Sawmill Flat Road and Parrotts Ferry for more about that read “TUD Warns Of Traffic Delays” here.
