The dam story

    The increase in aggregate trucks on CA 20 going east from Marysville may be for fill at Oroville Dam
    Are there time limits on when trucks can be on the roads? I note that there seem to be a lot of trucks in convoy  at certain times.
    If there is a time limit for trucks, does that limit hinder the delivery of aggregate?
    If it does hinder the delivery of aggregate, who has the authority to speed things up?
    Dredgers in the goldfields seem to be operating 24/7.
    Something good for local economy. What lessons are to be learned from Oroville 17? At church, the pastor is forecasting that people will remember 2017 as the year of the dam failure. In generations to come, grandchildren, who are yet to be born will roll their eyes when grampa and gramma tell their dam story for the umpteenth time.

    dickBoyd, it is my understanding there is NO time limit for running aggregate (40 yarders, transfer trucks etc.) trucks. In all instances of "emergencies" city, county, state. and federal government has the authority to over ride 'time stipulations', if any time stipulations.
