U.S. 395 Closed Due to Whiteout Conditions

BISHOP – Due to whiteout conditions on the highway, Caltrans has closed part of U.S. 395 in Mono County. The highway is currently closed from Gorge Road just north of the city of Bishop to the town of Bridgeport, and the closure is anticipated to remain in place overnight. U.S. 6 in Bishop remains open as an alternative route, which connects to the Nevada 95.

While this stretch of U.S. 395 is closed, Caltrans and CHP will continue to escort vehicles between Bishop and the junction with State Route 203/Mammoth Lakes. Caltrans will post updates on this closure to its social media channels on Twitter and Facebook.

With the severe nature of this storm, Caltrans is asking all drivers to limit nonessential travel until the peak of the storm has passed. If you must travel, check the Caltrans website and Quickmap.dot.ca.gov before you get on the road. You can also call the Road Condition Hotline at 1-800-427-ROAD (7623).

Because visibility is limited and roads are slick, we ask that all drivers slow down and allow themselves plenty of time to reach their destinations safely. Caltrans also reminds drivers to move over for Caltrans crews, CHP, and other emergency vehicles. If you come across a snowplow on the highway, give yourself enough space to keep yourself and our snowplow operators safe.

For those with sensory disabilities requiring alternate formats (i.e., Braille, large print, sign language interpreter, etc.) and those needing information in a language other than English, please contact Bob Gossman at (760) 881-7145 or TTY 711.
