Caltrans Crews Pushing East To Clear Snow Covered Sierra Passes

Arnold, CA...Caltrans District 10 gave the following update yesterday on their progress. "The gate at the Mt. Reba turnoff remains closed, and that is as far as folks can go by vehicle. After removing snow on SR-4 near Lake Alpine, a Caltrans' maintenance crew saw that a washout had occurred, the result of a culvert being plugged this past winter. The culvert was cleared, the structural repairs have been made and the road is scheduled to be patched this week. Once repairs are complete, the goal is to continue moving east and open SR-4 to the east end of Lake Alpine by the end of this week. Of course, weather, resources, road conditions and other factors always play a role in the progress of clearing mountain passes.





STATUS OF THE MOUNTAIN PASSES IN DISTRICT 10

Here is an update on the four mountain passes that are located in District 10 and close for the winter season. There is no estimated opening date for the passes that are still being cleared, due to the snow, debris and potential repairs that await maintenance crews:

** MONITOR PASS/State Route 89 (SR-89): Is now open.

** SONORA PASS/SR-108: The Kennedy Meadows gate remains closed, and that is as far as folks can go by vehicle.

** TIOGA PASS/SR-120: Yosemite National Park handles the clearing of the roadway in the park, while Caltrans District 9 clears Tioga Pass east of the park. District 9 has cleared to Warren Creek, encountering snow 8 to 15 feet high on the road - and snowdrifts up to 50 feet in some locations. Caltrans' District 9 recently flew over Tioga Pass, so check out its video below for a bird's-eye view.

** EBBETTS PASS/SR-4: The gate at the Mt. Reba turnoff remains closed, and that is as far as folks can go by vehicle. After removing snow on SR-4 near Lake Alpine, a Caltrans' maintenance crew saw that a washout had occurred, the result of a culvert being plugged this past winter. The culvert was cleared, the structural repairs have been made and the road is scheduled to be patched this week. Once repairs are complete, the goal is to continue moving east and open SR-4 to the east end of Lake Alpine by the end of this week.

Of course, weather, resources, road conditions and other factors always play a role in the progress of clearing mountain passes.

    I know Caltrans is always fair game for leaning on shovel jokes etc. However they do a fantastic job here especially in winter to keep Hwy 4 the easiest pathway to a ski resort.

    Besides most of our Caltrans guys are locals and this is their home, economy and their families drive these roads as well.

    I would go so far to say that our local Caltrans guys outperform their mandate for our local roads

      If this is Tioga Pass that is actually the Forest Service doing the clearing. Must be great to be up there this time of year, although a dangerous job.

    Liar. I saw you in your old green ford pinto parked at little trees burning a joint in the parking lot. I know it was you because you had a model of a jacked up dodge on the dashboard.
