Bee Canyon and Idyllwild Control roads to close for repairs

San Bernardino — Two U.S. Forest Service roads in the San Jacinto Mountains are slated to close for a month for repairs. The popular Bee Canyon Road (5S07) will be closed weekdays from March 9 through April 9, but be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday each week. And nearby Idyllwild Control Road (5S06) will be closed seven days a week from approximately March 16 through April 16 between Apela Drive in Idyllwild and about 1.7 miles to the west in the Chimney Flats area. "My goal is to limit future long-term closures so visitors can enjoy them all year long,"  District Ranger of the San Jacinto Ranger District Julie Hall said. "So I'm asking engineers and crews to repair the roads in a way that avoids major future washouts and improves the surrounding natural resources." Work on
