2022 Tour of the California Alps to Close Monitor Pass and Ebbetts Pass on Saturday
The 2022 Tour of the California Alps is scheduled for this Saturday, July 16, in Alpine and Mono counties. This year’s cycling event marks the first since 2019 after organizers had to cancel in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 and the Tamarack Fire. As part of the event, Caltrans will temporarily close access to several roads and highways to accommodate the riders.
Starting Saturday morning:
- State Route 89 (Monitor Pass) will be closed from the junction of State Route 4 to the junction of U.S. 395 from 5:00 am to noon.
- State Route 4 (Ebbetts Pass) will be closed from Lake Alpine to the junction with State Route 89 from 5:00 am to 4:00 pm.
- There will be intermittent traffic delays on State Route 89 between Turtle Rock Park Road and Airport Road from 5:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Additionally, traffic will be reduced to a single lane on State Route 89 at Markleeville Creek Bridge and on State Route 4 at Silver Creek Bridge to make room for cyclists during the event. There will also be a lane closure on State Route 89 approximately .2 miles north of Markleeville.
