The Great Shasta Rail Trail Association is partnering with the USDA Forest Service, Lassen National Forest, to complete the environmental analysis to restore two former railroad bridges along the Great Shasta Rail Trail, located at Lake Britton, California.

This project is within the Hat Creek Ranger District on the Lassen National Forest.

The bridges and the trail are owned by the GSRTA, which is converting the former 80-mile McCloud Railway between McCloud, Hambone and Burney to a public trail. There are seven bridges along the trail, all of which need to be restored.

“The two Lake Britton bridges are a high priority since there is no other safe access over the lake or crossing of State Route 89,” said April Gray, President of the GSRTA.

During the restoration process, the GSRTA has requested the use of two small areas adjacent to the bridges on national forest land to stage equipment and materials. As a Forest Service partner, the GSRTA is completing resource surveys and assessments, and preparing the environmental analysis.

The public is invited to comment on this project by sending their electronic comments to: with “NEPA for Lake Britton Bridges” in the Subject line. Comments are requested by October 31st, 2017.
