Silverado Canyon, CA – The County of Orange’s OC Public Works Department has awarded a construction contract to replace three deteriorated timber bridges along Black Star Canyon Road. The bridges are located two to three miles north of Silverado Canyon Road along Black Star Canyon road. This road becomes Skyline Drive at the Orange/Riverside County line. This project will improve access for emergency services and the public to the unincorporated County wilderness areas and the Cleveland National Forest. The road is a narrow, twelve feet to fourteen feet wide dirt road that is currently being used for hiking, biking, fire and emergency access, as well as local property owner access. Black Star Canyon Road will be closed for public hiking and biking use on Mondays thru Fridays from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on November 23rd to December 23rd. No weekend closures are anticipated. For further information on this project, please contact Javier Soto, Manager OC Inspection/Contracts, at 714-245-4505 or George Zaun at 714-448-6829.
