California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District #8, San Bernardino, Friday July 20, 2018, issued an update that work continues with the paving and guardrail project on State Route 18 (SR 18) to mill and overlay pavement and upgrade guardrail on the shoulder.  The work is taking place between Lower Waterman Canyon and State Route 138 (SR-138)/Crestline Cutoff.  The guardrail work has been taking place since last month and the paving portion of the project began Thursday, July 19th.   


The paving project will  be on the outside lane first on the northbound (uphill) SR 18 and then continue to the outside lane on southbound direction of travel.  Once the southbound is complted, work will begin on the inside lanes.  Guardrail work will continue at various locations with lane closures during the paving.


Motorists are advised that during the paving there will be necessary traffic holds for up to ten minutes to allow the paving trucks to stage in the work zone.  The closure limits will be approximately two miles in length and flaggers will be on scene during the traffic breaks. 


California Highway Patrol is also assisting Caltrans with traffic control and enhanced enforcement.


The work hours are 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.


Motorists and truck traffic are advised that the paving will require reduced lane width. Please slow down and pay close attention while driving through the construction zone. 


If possible use State Route 330 (SR 330) to avoid delays. 


All American Asphalt is the paving contractor on the $17 million project, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
