  • Watch crews closing gates to Sacramento Weir, and beautiful views of waterway

    Officials have closed all the gates of the Sacramento Weir, stopping the flow of water that helped flood the Yolo Bypass west of Sacramento. After heavy rains, crews on Jan. 10, 2017, lifted gates on the flood release structure near downtown Sacramento. It was the first time since 2006 that the river rose high enough to open the structure.
