SACRAMENTO >> Money for the reconstruction of Yolo County’s low-water bridge in the Cache Creek Canyon was approved as part of the new state budget.

Bridge repair on County Road 40 was included in the budget by state Senator Bill Dodd and Assemblywoman Cecilia Aguiar-Curry. Some $800,000 was allocated.

“The 2015 Rocky Fire was one of several wildfires in the past few years to have caused tremendous damage in both my Senate and former Assembly district,” said Dodd. “These funds are critical in being able to provide our first responders with the adequate transportation needs in the event of an emergency. Restoring this bridge is necessary to ensure the safety of our rural communities in Yolo, Lake, and Napa counties.”
