Highway 38, North Shore Drive, will be closed from Stanfield Cutoff west to the Fawnskin triangle on Thursday, April 9, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Also, please be aware of heavy bicycle traffic on the southbound lane of North Shore Drive between Stanfield Cutoff and Division from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., as professional riders will be warming up for the races. The East Boat Ramp will be closed as well, but you may launch free at Big Bear Marina on Thursday only. Spectators wishing to watch the race and visit the team parking lot, are asked to park in the North Shore Elementary School...
