TRAFFIC ADVISORY

HWY 330 BRIDGE PROJECT - ONE-WAY TRAFFIC CONTROL

Motorists may experience traffic delays on HWY 330 at the West Fork City Creek Bridge as Caltrans works on a bridge rail replacement project. The project, which is expected to be completed by Fall 2020, will cause delays with a one-way traffic control in effect, daily. BBMR recommends taking HWY 38 as alternative routes. Learn more about the 3 ways up and 3 ways home.

SNOW CHAINS MAY BE REQUIRED DURING WINTER MONTHS


Snow chains, also known as tire chains or cables, are required for safety when snow or ice conditions cause slippery highways. Check the road conditions before you head out to see if snow chains are required. There are 3 ways up and 3 ways home from BBMR which means snow chains may be required on one highway and not the other, so you should always carry chains in your vehicle during the winter months, even if your car has snow tires.
