Bodie road opens

BODIEState Route 270 – Bodie Road – Opens for the Season!

Mono County – District 9 Director Tom Hallenbeck is pleased to announce that State Route 270 – Bodie Road has reopened from its winter closure status.

Bodie State Park is open to the public but the gate to the park remains closed due to snow which is approximately 1 ½ miles before the park.  There is limited parking at the gate, but please do not block the gate.

As is often the case this time of year, the opening of State Route 270 is dependent on favorable weather.  If the area is impacted by inclement weather Caltrans may have to reclose the highway.  Please check local highway conditions by calling 800-427-7623 or going online to: www.quickmap.dot.ca.gov before you begin your travel.
