Big Bear, CA – The California Department of Transportation will begin a rock fall barrier project on State Route 330 near Running Springs tomorrow. The $5 million contract was awarded to Spectrum Construction Group, Inc. from Irvine. This project will remove rock debris from the slope, excavate and reduce slope size and install two rock-fall barriers at postmiles 37 and 39.
On Tuesday, July 16, drainage installation will begin near postmiles 37 and 39 behind K-rail. Please expect delays during construction hours.
Beginning September 9, a full closure will be in effect until September 23.
During this closure, crews will perform rock scaling, slope excavations and construct the two rock-fall barriers.
