Road Condition News (discussion)
« on: Dec 09, 07, 12:22:32 PM »
 
   The side roads are still pretty slippery in town...especially the uphills. No sign of any plowing. I've watched a number of cars (some of them 4X4's) turn around after trying unsuccessfully to get up Spruce above the rise at Oriole. 
      I heard Cal-Trans won't send out the plows until there's at least 4 inches of snow.   

 
      Addendum at 12:29 -- Woops!....There goes a plow finally.

This is the notice for the Traffic Task Force for this weekend.  Sounds busy-

Based on the new snow yesterday and today (12 to 16 inches) and the upcoming holiday weekend Mountain High Resort will reach it's capacity on Feb 13th, 14th and 15th. Mountain High Resort has hired two CHP officers for each of the before mentioned days to help with traffic flow and illegal parking along Hwy 2. Mountain High Resort will be using a portable message sign, street level banners and electronic media to convey our parking and ticket status to the public. In addition to Mountain High Resort being very busy this weekend the snow play activity will be extreme from Hwy 2 & 138 all the way to the closer area on Hwy 2 past Mountain High Resort due to the new snow. This holiday weekend has the potential to be the busiest weekend of the year!


Yikes! It's a beautiful day! I came home yesterday via Valyermo (Friday 4pm) and the snowplayers were out. Not many, but I think it was a sign of a very busy weekend. It's beautiful during the day but still rather slick after dark so be careful on the ice!

We're taking advantage of the nice weather to load up the scooters and head to San Diego. Have a wonderful weekend all!

Has anyone been out there today? I'm not seeing much traffic on the live cams but I was just curious if anyone had been out and about and seen it firsthand. Hubby has to go out to Verdugo Pines today so wasn't sure if he was going to sit in traffic to do it . . .

  I Flew right up 2, didn't see any snowplayers. The light traffic was mostly heading toward the ski area.

While I think it will be busy later today, I don't think it will be completely slammed like some predicted. The weather is too nice in the basin today, and I think people are doing other things to spread out ther weekend activities.

Didn't know were to post this but it is road related and noticed it on the message board by Mtn High also so it may as well go here.

 During all of last week a big thank you to Caltrans for reminding drivers on the freeways using the message boards through out the southland freeway system. There were several vehicle vrs. car related accidents recently resulting in fatalities and all vehicles involved were at fault by not seeing the motorcyclist.

That's nice for down in the city, but to have something about motorcycles on the board up here in February is not prioritizing very well. It could be utilized alot better.. like having it say something like "illegal parking violators will be ticketed or towed".

I realize CHP and Cal-Trans are different agencies, and they have limitations on what it can say... but there has got to be a way to have it say something a little more pertinent that is within those limitations.

When are these MURDERcyclists going to realize that the roads are not for them alone. Vehicles with four or more wheels are bigger than them and cause more damage to then than they cause to the four wheel or more vehicles most of the time.

I was run off the road three times on a motorcycle, never injured badly, and decided my well being was more important to me than riding a motorcycle.

It must have been posted all through Southern California as I saw over a dozen signs with the same message today.

There are snow patches on the coldest parts of N4. For the most part the snow did not stick. Cinders have been laid down.
