U.S. Highway 395 Reopens with Escorts from Lee Vining to State Route 167

MONO COUNTY – Caltrans will be escorting travelers on U.S. Highway 395 between the town of Lee Vining and the junction with State Route 167 beginning tomorrow. No additional escorts will be offered as crews will be continuing to work to fully reopen the road.

Escort schedule:

·        7:00 am to 8:30 am

·        3:30 pm to 5:00pm

Caltrans will post updates on road closures to its social media channels on Twitter and Facebook. Before you leave home, check to get the latest on road conditions, including chain control restrictions. You can also call the Road Condition Hotline at 1-800-427-ROAD (7623).

Because roads are slick, we ask that all drivers slow down and allow themselves plenty of time to reach their destinations safely. Caltrans also reminds drivers to move over for Caltrans crews, CHP, and other emergency vehicles. If you come across a snowplow on the highway, create enough space to keep yourself and our snowplow operators safe.
