‚ÄčThe Latest - State Route 18  

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and Matich Corporation will continue the $4 million paving project on State Route-18 (SR-18).

The paving project is currently between Arrowhead Villa Road (next to the Caltrans yard close to the SR-173 intersection) and the SR-330

in Running Springs. The current construction schedule is below. These dates and times may

change based on weather or construction progress.


Lake Arrowhead Villa Rd to the SR-330

(Running Springs) 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. 

No weekend work

Motorists traveling to Big Bear Valley are advised to use State Route-38 to avoid delays. Matich Corporation is paving as much as possible each day. Advisory signs are posted stating that the project is approaching.

SLOW DOWN as soon as you see the construction advisory signs! You have entered a construction zone and speeds have been reduced. Expect delays.

Access to SR-18 is restricted until the hot asphalt has cooled sufficiently. Make parking arrangements outside of the construction zone if the project is in your area.

Motorists driving to Big Bear Valley are advised that other roadwork is underway on state highways: State Route-18 between Snow Valley Resort and Big Bear Dam is closed Monday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. (through Thursday October 29).

State Route-38 has traffic control from 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. for paving until project completion.
