"US HIGHWAY 395 SOUTH OF INDEPENDENCE FULLY REOPENED

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) would like to inform the traveling public that US Highway 395 just south of the town of Independence, CA in Inyo County has reopened to normal traffic flows.

On Sunday, June 25 at approximately noon, US Highway 395 closed to northbound traffic due to an emergency culvert repair.  A detour was set up for through traffic and has been in place since that time.  Caltrans and Department of Water and Power crews were able to repair the failed culvert and have reopened the road. 

Caltrans would like to thank the traveling public for their patience during this emergency repair."

Smart & Finally Here: Smart & Final's Grand Re-Opening

Smart & Final has been a staple for shopping in the community for years and today is the grand re-opening of the grocery chain on Bishop's north end of town. While it wasn't closed, customers have had to navigate construction and assembly of shelving, as well as the renovation of the parking area for months. But now the story is finished and open! Featuring an impressive and varied array of produce that made this vegetarian author very happy, a meat department that is fresh and extremely well priced, a frozen food section that has everything you can imagine, a very nice bulk grain/dried goods bin system, and rows of all the canned and boxed goods you could possibly want. And the prices are amazing! 

Make sure you grab a store map before you get shopping and remember bring your own reusable bags.

It's a one-stop shop and we're happy it's finally ready!
