Hammonton Road into Yuba Goldfields closed due to criminal activity

At the July 25, 2023 Board meeting, the Yuba County Board of Supervisors approved the gating of Hammonton Road (between Hammonton-Smartsville Road and Timbuctoo Road) leading into the Yuba Goldfields for an 18-month duration.

This item, brought forth by Public Works, addressed the excessive criminal activity occurring in the Goldfields including assault with deadly weapons, drug use, illegal dumping, trespassing, illegal firearms, abandoned vehicles, and more. 

Over the next year and a half, Yuba County staff aims to work on re-opening this area to allow for legal and safe public access.
