News restrictions on old Eureka bridge

Eureka., CaThere’s a road alert to tell you about. But this one is a little different. It’s not a road project like paving — instead a traffic restriction.

The Humboldt County Department of Public Works says only passenger vehicles are being allowed on the Berta Ranch covered bridge. Due to concerns about the structure, commercial traffic is prohibited and there is a three-ton weight limit on any passenger vehicle crossing the bridge.
