Caltrans will be doing doing maintenance projects to clean roadside culverts and remove rocks from the steel cable netting along the slopes of State Route 18 at “The Narrows” between Monday, June 15 and Friday, June 19. The closure hours will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from State Route 138 to Lake Gregory Drive. Hwy. 18 will also be closed in both directions from SR 138 to Lake Gregory Drive (only if needed to complete the work) from June 22-26.
The following road closures are necessary so plan ahead, if possible
Caltrans officials are advising motorists to use Crest Forest Drive as the detour. With the major road closure to perform the maintenance work motorists need to give themselves extra time as the traffic on Crest Forest Drive is apt to be heavier than usual.
