View Full Version : State Highway 330 Repairs completed - route is open, unrestricted
04-04-06, 01:09 PM
Emergency repairs including installation of a rock fall drape were
completed at noon today, April 4, 2006. State Route 330 is now open
with no restrictions.
Approximately $500,000 was spent to make repairs to an upper slope on
the route located about one mile uphill from SR-30. Over the years,
rainfall has caused the "sloughing" of rock and debris onto the
highway. The decision to install a 100-foot high by 192-foot wide
rock fall drape was made by Caltrans geologists. The drape acts as a
catch basin for the debris and is similar to ones located on SR-138
(near Crestline) and SR-18 (The Narrows).
thats great news, need to head down the hill tomorrow and wanted to go that route

When your coming down 330 theres a trail on your left side in a big turn out, when there was a fire, all the fire trucks parked there and the fire was back down on that trail... oh theres a shooting range back down there too, its alittle bit after the big cell phone tower that looks like a pine tree when your coming up.

Sounds like you're talking about the 1N09 area all right. I'll check to see what we have closed in that area.

From what I've found so far - 1N13 is still closed from Greenspot Road to
1N09 - this was originally done under Forest Order 04-1 after the Old Fire, and has been extended thrugh FO 05-1. I'll check and see if there's a tentative opening date. Since you're up there - check and see if the road is signed "1N13" if you can. I've been teaching classes mostly on the Arrowhead side - haven't been up 330 in a long while.
I really need to put copies of my maps in my briefcase - but rarely need them at my "real" job at LAX :)

Nope - I teach several of the classes for SBNFAOHV. I also teach several classes at LAX - but that's another story :)
