Mt. Baldy Road accesses one of the most highly visited areas of the Angeles National Forest. The National Visitor Use Monitoring (NVUM) estimate of entire Angeles NF visitation in Fiscal Year 2016 was 2,880,000 National Forest visits including ski visits.
The proposed roadway rehabilitation will improve access for visitors to the Angeles National Forest specifically the Mt. Baldy Resort, Ice House Canyon Trailhead, and Mt Baldy Village. The proposed project will increase safety by improving the pavement surface conditions within Federal Lands ensuring that the amenities can be enjoyed by all. In addition, shoulder grading will improve drainage and reduce soil erosion extending the service life of the roadway.
The proposed Project includes 5.44 miles of roadway resurfacing including cold milling, Asphalt-Rubber Hot Mix (ARHM) overlay, dig-outs, and shoulder grading. Safety improvements will include new guardrails, and Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) signage and striping. The safety elements will improve sight distance and provide overall safer operations on the roadway.
