BISHOP – Due to significant heavy snow, wind, and whiteout conditions on the highway, U.S. 395 will remain closed overnight in both directions between Gorge Road, 13 miles north of Bishop, and Bridgeport. Caltrans asks that all drivers respect the closure points and not attempt to access the highway from any other road. Maintenance crews will continue to plow 24/7, working through the night. CHP and Caltrans will reassess highway conditions starting tomorrow morning.

Caltrans will continue to post updates on this closure to its social media channels on Twitter and Facebook.

For those traveling between Bishop and Minden/Carson City/Reno, U.S. 6 is available as a detour around the closure. Please check quickmap.dot.ca.gov and nvroads.com for current road conditions before you leave home. You can also check roads.dot.ca.gov or call 1-800-427-7623.

In addition to U.S. 395, several Mono County roads, including Benton Crossing Road, are currently closed due to the snowstorm. For the latest details on Mono County road closures, visit monocounty.ca.gov/roads.

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.
