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.

Re: the road closure - I couldn't find anything, but another person reported on FB that the sign they saw seemed to indicate the 330 on-ramp from the 210 would be closed overnight tomorrow night.

Maybe sheis talking about the closure during October and I believe it's going to be close from 8 to 4 AM every day a total closure in the Arctic Circle?

Got it, thx bb, interesting indeed. The technology's definitely there for the early warning system, I think delivery is a bit of a chore still. Sending out a text to 10 million people at once hasn't quite been perfected yet. with time...

Ok I was able to post that in the general discussion, wasn't sure where to put it. Just so you can see what I am talking about. It has been shared on facebook almost 10K times. Again, was just surprised they would post this

This was not a USGS advisory. THey don't issue them. That's why I was surprised to see the Sheriff do a facebook post. It was really just a reminder to be prepared I am sure

My brother has the bug out bag, because he has to leave quickly once the tsunami sirens start blaring. We have discussed having cash, water, portable phone chargers,food, family phone numbers, flashlight, extra clothing...things like this. I do the usual earthquake prep at my house. I am going to read about that earthquake advisory online, because I know they cannot be predicted. However, would not be surprised if they developed some sort of panel as they are developing the earthquake warning system now. Once a quake begins. areas further away get alerts, allowing them to brace or position themselves before the shaking gets to them. Pretty cool
