Hwy. 18 at Arctic Circle Closing for Winter Weather Preparation

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 8, will close State Route 18 (SR-18) in the “Arctic Circle” Monday through Friday nights from October 12 to October 29, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. The closures will be  in effect between Snow Valley Mountain Resort and the Big Bear Dam.

Maintenance crews will be cleaning cuts and drains as part of Caltrans’ storm relief efforts. Additionally, crews will take advantage of the closure to conduct routine maintenance such as cutting vegetation away from signs and removing slide material and debris that has found its way down the slopes as a result of recent storms.

Motorists are advised to use SR 38 as an alternate route to Big Bear. “Plan ahead, know before you go!”
