Emergency Slope Project on State Route 18

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will begin a $1.095 million project to replace and repair rock slope netting on State Route 18 (SR-18) between State Route 138 (SR 138) and Lake Gregory Drive near Crestline, also known as the Narrows. The project will replace two damaged rock slope nets on the upper slope, clean out the rock fall barriers and make repairs to other damaged netting locations.

Work will begin with scaling on Wednesday, February 12 (instead of Tuesday February 11 due to wind) and continue until the end of April 2020, weather dependent. The work hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Fridays from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  There will be no work next week, February 17 through 21. Work will resume the week of February 24.

Motorists are advised that there will be flagging with one-way traffic control during the work hours. Motorists are advised the delays are expected to be approximately fifteen (15) minutes. Please plan ahead and add extra time to your trip or use alternate routes to avoid the lane closures.
