The regional High Desert Corridor proposal is designed to improve travel safety and connect areas of the Antelope Valley with the Victor Valley.

The proposed main corridor for the HDC connects SR-14 and the Palmdale Transportation Center in Los Angeles County with US-395, I-15, Bear Valley Road and State Route 18 (a.k.a. Bear Valley Cutoff) in San Bernardino County.

However, the result could adversely affect the Lucerne Valley area, according to the chairman of the Lucerne Valley Economic Development Association.

But it was closer than it sounds.

“Every game has come down to one or two balls,” said organizer Jo Richards.
