Carbon Canyon Road Delays

Electronic message boards along Carbon Canyon Road indicate that there will be delays from 8 a.m. tomorrow morning, Tuesday the 25th, until 5 p.m. on Wednesday the 26th.

The reason is that heavy equipment will be bringing in material for an enclosure for a 70-foot tall emergency communications tower, disguised as a pine tree, that is being installed at the top of Canon Lane south of Carbon Canyon Road on the Chino hills side of the Canyon. The large vehicles required to bring this material in will deliver the equipment to a location near the fire station on the corner of Carbon Canyon Road and Canon Lane, at which point the items will be transferred to smaller vehicles for transport up the narrow road to the destination.

It appears that the main delays will be between 8 and 9 a.m. both days and as the material is transferred across Carbon Canyon Road, which will be closed for those periods when equipment is shuttled up Canon Lane.

The work on completing the enclosure should be done by mid-September and the emergency communications project should be up and running in November or December, according to a City of Chino Hills press release on the project.

Because this will be coming from the Orange County side, there could be additional delays to the existing construction project for a traffic signal in Olinda Village, so commuters through the Canyon should be on notice, just in case.
