What is the scope of the project?

The most important maintenance practice is the sealing of cracks that have developed within asphalt pavements. This crack sealing significantly reduces the likelihood that surface runoff will seep into the aggregate base course beneath the asphalt and compromise the structural integrity of the street sec- tion. When the structural section of a street fails, the repair cost is typically very high. The relatively low cost annual practice of sealing these cracks defers the need to employ more costly street rehabili- tation and restoration practices. This project includes sealing various cracks on 65 residential street segments.

What is the project duration?

Work is scheduled to begin in mid June and will take approximately 8 days to complete. Hours of con- struction will be from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. We expect the project to be com- pleted by June 25, 2018.

What about parking?

“No Parking” signs with the exact date of the crack sealing will be posted adjacent to the areas of work at least 2 days in advance of the work. If unexpected delays occur, the new date will be posted at least 48 hours prior to the rescheduled date.

BIG BEAR LAKE, CA – At the February 26, 2018 Mid-Year Budget Workshop, City management shared with Council that despite a winter fraught with light precipitation the local economy continues to prosper. Major revenue sources are performing well and expenditures remain in line with budget projections. The lack of snowfall this winter season has allowed for an excess of funds in the City’s snow budget, giving Council the opportunity to approve a contribution of $300,000 into Snow Reserves to support future snow removal efforts as well as a $300,000 contribution to Street Improvement Reserves continuing the City’s commitment to infrastructure development.

To minimize traffic congestion in the Big Bear area during the morning hours of heavy skier traffic, a new traffic flow plan has been implemented for select dates. The traffic control will begin at 7AM and continue unt il traffic subsides . Skiers are also asked to consider taking Highway 38 through Redlands and Highway 18 from Lucerne Valley. Both routes are less traveled and may save you time.

Starting before the Big Bear Dam, Electronic message boards and signage will direct skiers to Snow Summit and Bear Mountain parking areas. Traffic will be directed to use Highway 38 and Highway 18 to alleviate traffic congestion. Highway 38 is the recommended route for all Bear Mountain ski traffic.
