Big Bear, Ca, March 15, 2011, 2:15pm – The heavy rains that Southern California, particularly the San Bernardino Mountains, received in December of last year caused major damage to Highway 330. Highway 330 was closed during the storms and has since to reopen due to major slip outs along the route. The most significant damage occurred in three separate locations which Caltrans and contractors Skanska and Sema Construction have been working on. CalTrans has announced that in the near future Highway 330 will open to one way commuter traffic Monday through Friday. The road will open from 6:00am to 8:00am to downbound only traffic, and from 4:00pm to 6:00pm for upbound only traffic. CalTrans has not yet announced when this will go into effect. CalTrans hopes to have the road completely open by October 1st, 2011.
