Caltrans Construction Advisory Starting July 10th



Bishop – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is preparing to begin a highway resurfacing project at two locations on US 395 in Inyo County. The first location is near Dunmovin from 1.1 miles south of Cinder Road to 0.8 mile south of Haiwee Powerhouse Rd. and the second is near Big Pine from the south junction of State Route 168 to 0.1 mile south of Warm Springs Road.

The project consists of chip sealing to extend the life of the pavement and restriping.  Construction will be on the southbound lanes only.

Work is scheduled to begin July 10, 2017, and should be completed by the end of August 2017. 

Traffic will be reduced to one lane though the construction area with a posted speed limit of 35 mph during working hours.  Crews will be on site Monday throughThursday from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Friday 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  The traveling public should not experience any traffic delays.

This $1.9 million project has been awarded to American Pavement Systems, Inc. of Modesto, CA.

Work is scheduled to begin as listed, but is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment and/or materials and construction related issues.
