I just received information from Caltrans that their maintenance crews will be performing emergency crack seal operations on State Route (Hwy. 18) from the Big Bear Dam to Paine in Big Bear Valley today (Feb. 18), Thursday (Feb. 19) and Friday (Feb. 20). The hours are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Flagging will take place during the operation so drivers can expect delays of up to 20 minutes.
Motorists are advised that they may also use State Route 38 and go through Fawnskin to Big Bear to avoid the traffic control. Caltrans is sorry for the inconvenience but the repairs are necessary.
