Big Bear highway to reopen after collapse

June 16, 2011 | 10:35 am


Highway 330 to Big Bear will reopen Friday after being closed six months ago when portions of the road collapsed, Caltrans officials said.

Though sections of the highway have been accessible on a limited basis, Friday at 4 p.m. will mark the first time it has been open around the clock since being closed in December, the officials said Thursday.

However, they added that construction was not completed, warning drivers that the road could be partially or fully closed on occasion as crews finish three projects.

Construction is expected to be completed in late summer, the officials said.

Heavy rain and snowfall caused a large portion of the road to crumble Dec. 20, and additional damage occurred after other storms.
