Landslides Close Carbon Canyon Road, SBC’s Gateway From Orange County

(April 3) Conditions on Carbon Canyon Road, which serves as the entrance to San Bernardino County at its extreme southwest corner, remain sketchy.
The road has been closed on and off since the La Habra earthquake on March 28, at which point the road became vulnerable to hillside erosion and landslides.
Caltrans, the California Department of Transportation, has been engaged in attempting to remove parts of the hillside that glided down onto the roadway and to install makeshift barriers to prevent further obstructions.
At press time, word was that Caltrans would again close the road commencing today, Friday April 4, at 9 p.m. Road crews will engage in road repairs and hillside amendment over the weekend. It is anticipated the road will reopen on Monday, April 7 at 4 a.m.
