Is the dam construction affecting traffic? Going UTH on Friday the 2nd and wondering which way is better this year....

Depending on when, there has been some delays at the Dam due to construction. I prefer hwy 38 over the 330/18 anyway so not an impact to me. I use the back way (Hwy 18 via Lucerne) a lot as my folks live in Palm Springs.

Gotta agree with Mel, thats an easy way uth. Frankly have to admit I've never seen the cement plane though.

I have usually used the 330/18 and on occasion used 38 (nice easy drive)
However I have never used the 15 (coming from SD) to ? Bear Valley Rd to 18 the back way......does that add a lot of time verus 38? Curves don't bother me but traffic kills me... Thanks for all the input....

I use 15 to Bear Valley to 18 when I bring up the boat. It adds about a half hour to the drive. Easy driving though.

330/18. I'm on the west side so the extra time taking the other routes is just not really worth it unless there is an accident or construction.

Y'know, Nietzsche says: "Out of chaos comes order."

I prefer 18 to Victimville as well. Cement plane? I bet it has rocky landings and take offs.

There are a couple of stages that are above grey water that are called treated one of them is supposed to be drinkable. Gray water can come straight from your sinks, and washing machine.

I've seen those sprinklers also. Interesting way to deal with treated wastewater

For anyone planning on traveling the 14 freeway. The 14 is currently being closed from the NB5 on the south end to Ave M in Palmdale on the north end. The Sand Fire has gotten very ugly in the Acton area.

So, it is grey water then?

Yes, it is the treated water from the sewage treatment facility. There is that hillside that is somewhat visible from the 330, but also a pipeline that drops down into the next drainage to the east and that area has a much larger rainbird setup.

Thanks for the information. We've been full-time on the mountain for sixteen years and never saw it before...

Also for anyone interested Sand Fire just lost air support in one division due to use of a drone.

I was going to say it is too low for SV. It is in Fredalba. Seen it many times.

I know that it is the Running Springs sewage treatment plant, just below Smiley Park/Fredalba. I always figured it's just them getting rid of treated water.

They could be working on a new snowmaking system, I know snow valley pulled out all their air/waters years back and went with fan guns. Maybe they're putting them back in and testing... seems a little more logical.
