MONO AND INYO COUNTY — Caltrans has announced that U.S. Highway 395 in Mono County will remain closed through Friday morning. Maintenance crews are working around the clock, plowing, and dropping cinders to manage the storm. On Friday, Caltrans will reassess the road conditions for any sections that might be available to reopen.
Southbound U.S. Highway 395 is closed from the Nevada State Line to State Route 203 (Mammoth Lakes). Northbound U.S. Highway 395 is closed from 2.1 miles south of the Inyo/Mono county line, just north of Bishop, to the Nevada State Line. Neither closure will change until Friday at the earliest. With the assistance of the California Highway Patrol, Caltrans is escorting only essential vehicles north from Bishop through the closure so food, propane, and other necessities can reach snowbound areas.
R2 and R1 chain controls are still in effect on roads in Mono and Inyo counties.
