San Bernardino, CA – Crimson Circle, Kayah Drive, and Maple Ridge Drive located in the Big Bear area have been accepted into the San Bernardino County Maintained Road System (CMRS). The action — by the Board of Supervisors — will ensure that the appropriate infrastructure needed to support the existing land use is maintained.

EMERGENCY ACTION

The Department had intended to recommend that the Board accept the three roads into the CMRS in January of 2015. However, on December 15, 2014, the Department determined that the weather forecast called for up to 11 inches of snow for a 36-hour period starting Tuesday which could impact the public’s use of the subject roads and the health, safety and welfare of the public.

As a result, immediate action was taken by the Board to bring these roads into the CMRS in order for the Department to provide snow removal services.

SUPERVISOR’S REACTION

I applaud the diligence of the staff at the Department of Public Works for their efforts to ensure the safety of our residents in the Big Bear area,” Supervisor Ramos said in a media advisory issued immediately after the board’s action.

While we welcome the much-anticipated snow to our mountains, residents who live along these roads can rest-assured that they will have access to their roads during this impending storm and those that may follow,” Ramos stated.
