By Susan A. Neufeld


Big Bear, CA – The paving project in Big Bear, from Talmage Road to Pineview Drive, continues Monday, August 28. The Work will be done Monday through Thursday, from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. There will be no work done Friday or over the Labor  Day Weekend and will resume Wednesday, September, 6.

Lane closure and traffic controls will be in place from now until the end of September to complete the grinding and paving work in one direction of Hwy 18 each day starting with the median and then the #1 and #2 lanes. The work will start at either Paine Road or the Stanfield Cutoff and continue in one direction each day. A two hour window will be needed after the paving is completed to allow the material to set up before traffic can be permitted on that portion of the roadway.

Motorists are advised that they will experience delays during the grind and pave operation. Caltrans staff will be on site to monitor traffic in an effort to minimize delay to the motoring public, the community and businesses.

All work is dependent of weather. The entire project is expected to be completed by the end of October 2017.
