Okay, so John Benario informed me that there’s been an update to the update.
State Route 18 Emergency Repair Project Update
CORRECTION!!! LANES ARE OPEN NOW!!! Crews were able to finish it earlier than anticipated.
Sorry for any confusion, hopefully this is a good surprise for all!
San Bernardino – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) continues repairs on an emergency project at a washout section of State Route 18 (SR-18) near Panorama point between 40th St and SR-138 near Crestline.
The southbound SR-18 lanes have been closed since December 24, 2021, but will now reopen tonight, January 20, 2022 at approximately 10 p.m. The piloting program will end, and traffic will be able to use the newly fixed road that has been repaved and restriped.
Crews will continue to work in the area Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. during which time, lane closures may be needed to assist in the repairs that are ongoing. No work will be conducted on Saturdays or Sundays. Remaining repairs include excavation, guardrail replacement, inlet modifications, and plant establishment.
