BISHOP—Last year, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) asked the public to delay setting their lawn chairs along the parade route until the day of the parade. In the past, chairs set out early became a hazard, blowing in the street, blocking access to businesses along the route and  compromising safe passage for pedestrians on downtown sidewalks. Ropes, chains and other items meant to designate reserved spaces are prohibited again this year due to safety concerns.
Caltrans wants to thank last year’s participants for their care and understanding in waiting to set out chairs until the date of the event. By doing so, Caltrans was able to provide safe access to the public on downtown sidewalks during the days leading up to the parade.

We are again reminding the public to delay setting chairs on the sidewalk (or within the State Right of Way) before Saturday, May 26th , 2018. 

Caltrans will remove chairs prior to Saturday or any other objects and store them securely at our district office at 500 South Main Street. Owners can claim their items during regular office hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The office will be closed for Memorial Weekend at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, May 25 th and reopen on Tuesday, May 29 th at 8:00 a.m.
