The Sheep Creek Wash Culvert Project Is Competed

Tri-Community NewsPlus

The San Bernardino County Public Works recently completed the Sheep Creek Wash culvert project in Wrightwood.  In prior years, the road would repeatedly become flooded with thick mud and debris due to its location beneath the Wright Mountain landslide.

The $2.6 million project, funded by the SB 1 gas tax, replaced the existing 10×5-foot drainage box with a new 48×13-foot arch bridge culvert.  The project also included 400 feet of new roadway, which reduced much of the dip in the road crossing the stream.

This project will be of great benefit to the Wrightwood community and significantly reduce the frequency of road closures during big storms.  Lone Pine Canyon Road was closed during this project which began July of 2020.  The project was completed in March of 2021. 

The widening of Sheep Creek bridge at State Hwy 2  was also recently completed.  The project consisted of widening the existing bridge on both sides to accommodate 8-foot shoulders, upgrade bridge rails, and install guardrail.  This project took approximately 2 years.  Access was allowed during construction.  The building of the bridge was done in two halves allowing access in and out of Wrightwood during construction.
