Carbon Canyon Road Brush Clearance This Week

Commuters will get double the fun this week driving through Carbon Canyon.  Along with the continuing water line project along the state highway in the Brea portion of the Canyon, in which, from roughly 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., lane closures will occur, there will be another project taking place on the Chino Hills side.

This work is being conducted by state agencies CalTrans and CalFire, which will be engaged in removing brush on the easements on the sides of Carbon Canyon Road within the Chino Hills section.  They will be out from tomorrow, Monday the 21st, through Thursday the 24th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  As this is being done, the road will be reduced to one lane in the areas affected.

Although these are not peak driving times, there will be five hours during the next four days, during which portions of the road in both Brea and Chino will only have a single lane open.

Whatever inconveniences the work involves, the results will be significant.  With the brush clearance on the San Bernardino County side, potential fire hazards will be reduced.  On the Orange County portion, the improvements in water delivery will then be followed by paving of the state highway by CalTrans, something that has been needed.
