Due to El Dorado
Road Repairs Began October 2nd

October 6, 2020, San Bernardino, CA ___ The California Department of Transportation
(Caltrans) has initiated a $3.5 million Director’s Order to begin an emergency
project to repair damages to State Route 38 (SR 38) as the result of the El
Dorado wildfire. The project limits are from Thurman Flats to Glass Road.
The project has been awarded to
Riverside Construction Company, Inc. and started on Friday, October 2. The work
will stabilize slopes, remove debris and hazardous/burned trees, excavate and
clear culverts and inlet basins (post-fire debris flow basins), replace debris
racks, and include rock slope scaling.
The schedule is Monday through
Friday, 7:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., and will require traffic control until the
project is complete. The project is expected to be complete by late Spring
2021, contingent on weather and any further damage to the facility.
Be advised that State Route 38 is
subject to FULL closure during storm events due
to predicted debris flows.
Please use State Route 330 or 18 to avoid delays to Big Bear Lake.
