Tucked away in scenic and historic Nevada County

South Yuba River State Park has a little something for everybody. The patchwork park boundaries form a “string of pearls” for 20 miles along the river, including four historic bridges, miles of hiking trails, and the nation´s only wheelchair-accessible wilderness trail, the Independence Trail. The river´s beauty and solitude has long inspired the dedication and stewardship of those who know it best.

Save Our Bridge

Campaign to Save Our Bridge continues. The Bridge was stabilized in February 2015 with a temporary structure. Funding of $1.316 million was allocated in 2014 by the State towards the restoration of the bridge. All of your emails, faxes, letters and phone calls to Sacramento made that happen.

 

Most of 2015 was spent performing an in-depth assessment and preparing the engineering drawings needed to restore the Bridge. There was also a thorough analysis of the costs to fully restore the Bridge. This past year, 2016, was spent working on obtaining all of the necessary permits and environmental impact reports necessary to begin construction.

 

January 2017 delivered great news as Governor Brown has included the necessary $3.226 million to complete the project in the 2017-2018 State budget! Please follow the link below for the latest news.

 

We still need your support! Please continue to stay informed and involved in this project. Check this website for updates and respond to future “Action Alerts”, as we may need to communicate our positions on issues during the restoration with State Representatives. Together, we can Save Our Bridge.
