Roadwork to cause delays on 395 through Mono, Inyo counties
Motorists can expect lane closures and 20-minute delays on Highway 395 as California announced more than $8 million in roadwork in Mono and Inyo counties in the Eastern Sierra.
Maintenance projects on Highway 395 in Walker Canyon will result in 20-minute delays between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. July 24-28, according to the California Department of Transportation.
Road crews will be resurfacing Highway 395 between the Nevada state line and Walker 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.
Similar work of grinding and paving Highway 395 will take place south of Bridgeport with closures 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.
The work is funded under the $285 million Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, recently passed by the California Legislature and signed by the Gov. Jerry Brown.
“This legislation provides for needed investments to fix California’s roads, and Caltrans is acting quickly to get to work,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty. “This summer we will deploy construction teams across the state to resurface highways, improve safety for motorists and start filling more potholes than ever before.”
Work in Mono and Inyo counties includes:
■ A $2.1 million project to chip seal various sections of Highway 395 and State Route 89.
■ A $5.1 million project to resurface various sections of Highway 395 and State Route 6 near Bishop.
■ An $846,000 project will place a chip seal on sections of U.S. Highway 39.
