Spring Branch Road Work

REDDING, Calif. –  The Tehama County Public Works Department will be completing maintenance and improvements to the Spring Branch Shooting Area access road, within the Bureau of Land Management’s Sacramento River Bend Outstanding Natural Area, north of Red Bluff.

These road improvements will require a temporarily closure for public safety, while the project is underway.

The closure will affect Spring Branch Road from the junction of Jelly’s Ferry Road to the shooting area.  It will be in place from Monday, Jan. 10, through Thursday, Jan. 13, from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. each day.  The road will be reopened on Friday, Jan. 14.

Residents are encouraged to keep up with the Spring Branch Road improvements by visiting the Tehama County Public Works Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TehamaCountyPublicWorks.

Recreational target shooting is generally allowed on BLM-managed public lands unless areas are closed specifically to that activity, and as long is shooting is done safely and without damaging natural resources or public land improvements.  Information on BLM public land recreational shooting can be found at https://www.blm.gov/programs/recreation/recreation-programs/recreational-shooting. The BLM manages public lands to provide invaluable opportunities for public recreation as part of the Biden administration’s America the Beautiful initiative.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 western states, including Alaska, on behalf of the American people. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. Our mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.
