PG&E’s Pit 5 Powerhouse Road Closed for Safety During Repair Work

REDDING, Calif. —Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) temporarily has closed to the public the Pit 5 Powerhouse Road near Big Bend while a contractor safely repairs road damage caused by winter landslides.

Repairs are expected to be completed by late fall and the road reopened. PG&E owns the 4-mile road, which leads to its Pit 5 powerhouse and James B. Black Day Use Area along the Pit River in eastern Shasta County. The day use area is also closed for the recreation season due to access and storm damage.

The road also leads to the James Black Bridge, which leads to Oak Mountain Road.

The public can still reach Iron Canyon Reservoir via Big Bend Road.
