I just received a notice from Caltrans that an emergency crack seal project will be underway on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 19 and 20 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The work will be done on Hwy. 18 from the Big Bear Dam to Paine in Big Bear Village. Flagging will take place during the operation so drivers need to expect delays of up to 20 minutes.
Motorists may also use SR 38 and go through Fawnskin to Big Bear to avoid the traffic control..Caltrans regrets any inconvenience drivers will have but this is an emergency repair situation.
