The Big Bear Lake Traffic Control Plan was designed by the City of Big Bear Lake  Engineering Department with the Big Bear Sheriff, CHP and the Big Bear Fire Department, for the purpose of more evenly distributed traffic throughout the Valley. The Plan was first implemented in July 2015. Compliments were returned from happy people who arrived home safely in a very short amount of time.

Motorists will make right hand turns only entering Big Bear Boulevard. from Georgia to Temple Streets.  Plan ahead and park accordingly, depending on which way you will be leaving after the fireworks show. 

Motorists traveling East after the show, should park South of Big Bear Boulevard.  Likewise, if to plan to travel West, motorists should park North of Big Bear Blvd.
