MONO COUNTY — Caltrans will close State Route 89/Monitor Pass on Monday, April 11, ahead of a snowstorm forecast to hit the Sierra Nevada early next week. Maintenance crews will close access to the highway starting at 8:00 am and will assess it for reopening once the storm has passed.

- State Route 270/Bodie Road
- State Route 120 E/Mono Mills Road
- State Route 158 N/North June Lake Loop
Several more mountain highways remain in a winter closure as crews continue to remove snow and debris from the roads. There is currently no ETO for when the following routes will reopen:
- State Route 108/Sonora Pass
- State Route 120 W to Yosemite National Park
- State Route 203 at Mammoth Mountain Inn
- State Route 168 W at the Aspendale Gate
Additionally, the Crestview Safety Roadside Rest Area remains closed as crews continue to ready it for the travel season.
