Storm Damage / Washout (SBD 35.0)
In December 2010, major storms resulted in the washout of a section of Route 330 at the Postmile 35, just about 6 miles north of Highland Avenue. Repairs were estimated to be finished in late 2011 or early 2012. Work will be divvied up into three phases across the approximately 15-mile highway. The $6 million first phase to fix several smaller washouts and prepare the roadway will allow larger equipment to reach the worst-hit area.
In March 2011, it was reported that the road was reopened for commuter traffic only. Drivers will be able to drive downbound between Live Oak Road and Highland Ave in the morning between 6am and 8am. In the afternoon and evening, they will be able to drive upbound from Highland to Live Oak between 4 and 6. Traffic will only be one direction during commute times and motorists will need to use the proper lane. CHP says that they may close the road at anytime if there’s bad weather or reckless driving that endangers the safety of the construction workers.
In June 2011, it was reported that Caltrans now is targeting the full reopening for the July 4th holiday weekend.

Route 330 in the County of San Bernardino
is named the "Steve Faris Memorial Highway" This route was named in
memory of Battalion Chief Steve Faris of the California Department of
Forestry and Fire Protection. In 1998, Battalion Chief Faris helped
establish in the Inland Empire the Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council, which
was the first of more than 14 councils that are now active in the Counties
of San Bernardino and Riverside. He was instrumental in bringing together
the fire safe councils to form the Inland Empire Fire Safe Alliance. In
2002, Battalion Chief Faris was intimately involved in the establishment
of the Mountain Area Safety Taskforce (MAST), which brought local, state,
and federal agencies together to address the critical fire situation
presented by the bark beetle-drought tree mortality issues. The
consolidated efforts of MAST and fire safe councils contributed
significantly to the safe evacuation of more than 60,000 people during the
Old Fire of 2003. Battalion Chief Faris was a friendly, giving, and
passionate person who included everyone and found a way to work with
anyone interested in his efforts to save lives and establish defensible
space for properties in the mountains. Battalion Chief Faris died in an
automobile accident in September 2006. Named by Senate Concurrent
Resolution (SCR) 12, Resolution Chapter 72, on 7/14/2009.
