This is in memoriam of Richard Millener (Richard passed away March 20, 2019 in Big Bear Lake)



March 21, 2019____ The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District #8, is extending the emergency slope repairs on State Route 18 (SR-18) in the Big Bear Lake area near the Big Bear Dam. While Caltrans Maintenance Crews are working the area, there will be a one-way flagging operation.

Please be advised there will occasionally be a 30- minute full-closure in the area.


This operation will require the contractor to work seven days a week from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

Due to recent inclement weather, the work is anticipated to be complete in two to three weeks. At the end of each day, the road way (SR-18) will be fully open in both directions. Be advised inclement weather will affect the completion of this project. 


State Route 38 is on the north of the Big Bear Lake Bridge
