Sinkhole repairs to slow traffic on the 243 near Idyllwild
By Craig Shultz
Traffic will be limited on Route 243 near Idyllwild and Poppet Flats from Monday, Nov. 13 to Monday, Nov. 20 because of repairs.
Caltrans will continue to repair to a sinkhole and other damaged areas where water runoff from heavy winter snowfall and rain damaged a culvert and eroded slopes on the route.
There will be 24-hour one-way traffic control with a signal between Vista Grade Road and the Forest Service Vista Grande Fire Station from 6 a.m. Monday, Nov. 13, until midnight Nov. 20.
The project is expected to be completed by late fall.
