Surprise Valley

County Road 1 North


The Modoc County Road Department will be rehabilitating the northern section of County Road 1 from Cedarville to Fort Bidwell this summer. The Road Department would like to ask that anyone in need of an encroachment, onto or under County Road 1 in these areas, please contact the Road Department engineering division at 530-233-6409 so that we may process the request prior to the beginning of construction. An encroachment could include anything such as a new driveway or a culvert pipe under the road.

The Road Department will work with the applicant to perform this work for a reduced fee with the understanding that the work must be completed prior to the beginning of the construction. The deadline for permit applications will be the 10th of May.

Please note that when the rehabilitation project is complete, any encroachment under the road will have to be installed by means of boring under the road. This will add a great deal of expense to any encroachment.
