Road Closures

UPDATED 11:39 a.m. 4/10/2019

Suspected ice dams on the Yuba River on the Nevada County side of the border with Placer County have partially blocked the normal flow of the river, causing the river to flood over a bridge and road. 

  • Soda Springs Road is closed at Donner Pass Road in Soda Springs. Access to Serene Lakes is closed due to flooding.
  • Fire crews are located on the Serene Lakes side of the bridge in the event of an unexpected emergency.
  • Nevada County Public Works has an excavator onsite to begin digging through snow berms in the Soda Springs Ski Resort area and unplug the ice dam once railroad tracks are cleared by Union Pacific.
  • Road crews, law enforcement and fire officials are on the scene.
