REDDING, Calif. (AP) - No one’s saying California’s drought is over, but so much rain has fallen in the far northern area of the state since December that construction of hotel in Redding is being delayed because of saturated earth.

The Record Searchlight newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/20xviMR ) that a Sheraton hotel being built at the Turtle Bay Exploration Park will likely open in mid-2017 rather than earlier that year.

Turtle Bay CEO Mike Warren says the soil must dry out so the foundation can be created.

Warren says they are glad for the rain because the state needs it, but there are ongoing costs.

Turtle Bay lies along the Sacramento River in Shasta County.
