State Route 168 E Closed
BIG PINE – Caltrans has closed State Route 168 E from Death Valley Road, approximately 2.5 miles east of the town of Big Pine, to the junction of State Route 266 in Oasis due to a big rig that got stuck near The Narrows. The closure began late last night. Due to the remote nature of the incident, there is no timeline for when the route will reopen.
Drivers can take U.S. Highway 6 or State Route 190 through Death Valley National Park to connect with U.S. Highway 95 as detours around the closure.
