City of Bishop
The City of Bishop Department of Public Works reminds residents and visitors to be prepared for snow on city streets and sidewalks.
Residents and businesses should clear snow from public sidewalks at their homes and
businesses as soon as possible during and after snow. Clearing snow from sidewalks is
especially important in areas that stay shaded from the low winter sun. If the snow is not cleared immediately, it can partially melt, then freeze and remain slippery for a long time.
State law and city policy makes the maintenance of sidewalks, including snow
removal, the responsibility of the adjacent property.
When chains are required on Bishop-area highways, they should be also be used on
Bishop city streets. Chain requirements for state highways are available from Caltrans
including by dialing 511 from any phone. Since both Highway 168 and Highway 395 are
long routes, care is needed to ensure the chain requirements for the portions of those
highways in Bishop are noted.
Please help keep Bishop as safe and convenient as possible when it snows. Use snow
tires or chains as appropriate when driving on city streets and immediately clear snow
from sidewalks at your home or business. Your assistance is appreciated.
