MONO COUNTY –Caltrans District 9 is seeking public comment on its proposed Conway Ranch Shoulders Project beginning today until Monday, December 6, 2021.
This 2.2-mile project, which is currently in the design stages, will construct 8-foot wide shoulders on both sides of U.S. Highway 395 north of Lee Vining from the junction of State Route 167 to 0.4 miles north of Conway Ranch Road.
In addition to shoulder widening, culverts will be replaced as necessary to match roadway widening. A chain installation/removal area will be extended and improved with switch-controlled area lighting.
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2023 with an estimated cost of $9.3 million.
