road open

BISHOP – Caltrans District 9 reopened U.S. 395 this morning from its overnight closure. The highway closed Tuesday evening through most of Mono County due to heavy snowfall and whiteout conditions. As of 7:30 am today, the highway is fully open to passenger vehicles with chain control restrictions in place.

Semi-trucks and big rigs are still restricted from U.S. 395 between the junction of State Route 203 and the Nevada State Line. U.S. 6 is open as an alternative route for these vehicles. Caltrans will continue to post updates on this closure to its social media channels on Twitter and Facebook.
