Unless it closed in the last 90 minutes - I just came down the 330 from Arrowbear. Wide open like a Tuesday night during the World Series. Nothin but crickets - and an occasional patch-o-ice.

Be advised, traffic going down on hwy 38 is backed up for many miles from jenks lake road west and at a stand still. Recommend using hwy 18 through lucerne valley as an alternative!
