Caltrans and other public officials met with the public Thursday night in Idyllwild. Work on Highway 74 will continue for months. They are hoping that by Labor Day it can be opened 24 hours a day with flagging control.
Until then, 3rd District Supervisor Chuck Washington and Caltrans announced that the weekend hours (with escorts) will be 4 a.m. to midnight Saturday and Sunday. This begins Saturday, June 15.
And for the Fourth of July, the hours will be extended to Thursday, July 4, and Friday, July 5.
No announcement was made on the progress on Highway 243. That will take much longer.
The meeting, at Idyllwild School, was organized by the Mountain Disaster Preparedness Group. Attendance was estimated to be nearly 400 people.f

The desired search results appear instantly. Here is the difference based on orientation.
On Valentine's Day, February 14, 2019, heavy rains poured down across the Inland Empire, causing closures to numerous roads. The two biggest road closures were CA-74 coming out of Hemet and CA-243 coming up from Banning. The news has really dramatized many into thinking that Idyllwild and Pine Cove were inaccessible and cut off, and that simply is not true.
