Work continues on Highway 189

Apr 19, 2023 | Front Page

Work continues to repair the portion of Highway 189 that “slipped” as a result of the winter storms.

Caltrans is continuing a $2.25 million emergency project on State Route 189 near Lake Arrowhead.

Crews have brought in additional equipment, changeable message signs and have been removing snow, existing guardrail, loose rock wall and damaged pavement. Crews continue to rebuild the slope layer by layer, and then will pave and restripe the roadway.

Currently, SR-189 remains closed from the intersection of North Bay Road to slightly west of SR-173. Motorists still have access to Lake Arrowhead Village but will not be allowed directly through the work zone. You must go around to get to the Village using SR-18 to SR-173.

Crews will be working from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and possibly on weekends to assist in reopening the route as quickly as possible.

The current reopening estimate is late May 2023. That estimate may change due to additional weather constraints.
