Storm-Damaged Highway 330 to Reopen in a Year
Repairs to Highway 330, the San Bernardino National Forest artery that was damaged by washouts and mudslides in December, are in progress, but Caltrans said this week it will take a year to complete. That means motorists traveling to ski and visit other wilderness areas will have to take State Routes 18 and 38 for months to come.
Work will be divvied up into three phases across the approximately 15-mile highway. The $6 million first phase to fix several smaller washouts and prepare the roadway will allow larger equipment to reach the worst-hit area.
Caltrans District 8 Director, Dr. Raymond W. Wolfe, said his goal his is to safely rebuild the route and "to do so as quickly as possible."
