The Plumas County Public Works Department plans to undertake $38.5 million worth of road and bridge projects through 2019.
Public Works Director Bob Perreault presented a list of projects during the Board of Supervisors’ meeting Feb. 4.
In addition to the county projects, state and federal projects are also planned totaling $36.7 million.
Feather River Inn project still alive
The Feather River Inn, built in 1915, boasts a history as a mountain retreat for the wealthy and elite. The historical three-story building has been passed from owner to owner, and currently belongs to Mike Schoff, the former owner of the Schomac Group Inc., who plans on renovating the resort.

Along Highway 70, west of Graeagle, lies a sleepy-looking European-style chalet. The grand historic building is nestled beyond a small executive golf course and a few unfinished cottages.
It looks out of place and unresolved under the cover of the tall pines, and it leaves passersby with a lingering question — what is happening with the Feather River Inn?
Plumas Arts is pleased to be working with a group of Lake Almanor Basin community members to try out some new programming this winter season.
Two dances are planned in the coming months in hopes of giving folks something fun to do to encourage everyone to get out of the house and get together with friends and neighbors.
The first will be a family barn dance featuring contra dancing Feb. 22, at Chester Elementary School.
State Route 70 has reopened following a closure due to a rock slide near the Storrie Bridge in the Feather River Canyon, Plumas County, CA.
This slide is located 27 miles south of the Greenville Wye (junction of Highways 70 and 89.)
The Feather River Canyon route was closed off and on in various locations all weekend during heavy rain storms.
Motorists are advised to watch for large rocks in the roadway and call 1-800-427-ROAD or check the Caltrans Highway Information Network before traveling.
