  • Caltrans Urges Preparation
    for Monsoon Season

    Monsoon season is on the horizon for the deserts and mountains of southern California. A monsoon is a seasonal prevailing wind blowing from the southwest between May and September bringing rain. These storms typically drench these regions causing the creeks and washes to overflow their banks with water, debris, and mud, which ultimately sheet across state highways. Caltrans District 8 Maintenance is preparing for these storms by removing loose debris from slopes, making roadway repairs and grooming highway shoulders in anticipation of the summer storms. Caltrans also hires extra maintenance staff to work the 24/7 schedules that go into effect during rain events.
    The following tips may aid you in your travels through monsoon territory:

    • First, check the weather and traffic conditions before you leave. View real-time traffic and road conditions on Caltrans QuickMap (http://quickmap.dot.ca.gov)
    • Make sure your car is in good running condition.  Check your tires, brakes, fluids, wiper blades, and keep a full tank of gas. 
    •  Bring plenty of water and snacks, required medications, a charged cell phone with car charger, blankets and sturdy shoes in the event that you need them during an emergency.
    •  Be especially cautious at night. Flood dangers are much more difficult to see in the dark.
    •  Pay attention and follow any directions given by road signs or the overhead Changeable Message Signs (CMS).
    •  Follow all directions given to you by road work personnel, law enforcement, or emergency responders.  Call 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency.
    •  Never drive past "ROAD CLOSED" signs or attempt to cross flooded roadways.

    Be alert for Caltrans crews that are cleaning highways after a monsoon event and give the crews plenty of room. Slow down, be prepared, and TURN AROUND DON'T DROWN!
