Controlled Burn Set for Under Foresthill Bridge

A burn under the Foresthill Bridge is scheduled to take place on Mon., July 11, beginning at 8 AM. The burn, required as part of the Foresthill Bridge Seismic Retrofit and Painting Project, will take place simultaneously on both the Auburn side of the American River Canyon and the Foresthill side. The controlled burn is expected to continue into the nighttime hours. There are no plans for lane closures, however, crews will be standing by to shut down the bridge should smoke affect traffic.
