Portion of National Trails Highway reopens following floods
The San Bernardino County Department of Public Works reopened National Trails Highway from Crucero Road to Amboy Road in Ludlow today at 2 p.m.
Severe thunderstorms blasted the Mojave Desert September 7 and 8 triggering flash floods throughout the desert regions. Closure of I-95, I-40, National Trails Highway (Route 66), Needles Highway, and various other desert roads occurred due to washouts and bridge damage.
The most extensive damage was along National Trails Highway where approximately 40 bridges were damaged along with major portions of the roadway.
Public Works crews have been working diligently to make these repairs. For the most up to date information on road closures we have a web page located here.
