Seasonal Routes on State Highways Open for Summer Even as Stay-At-Home Order Remains In Effect

Alpine, Tuolumne, Mono and Inyo Counties, CA...The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) announced today it has opened seasonal highways in the Sierra after completing necessary road repairs and removing winter snow and debris in preparation for the summer season. The opening of the Sierra routes comes at a time when California’s “stay-at- home” order remains in effect until further notice. All Californians are reminded that it is critical to stay home during this time in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, social distancing behaviors and other preventive measures as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and the California Department of Public Health help protect the health and well-being of everyone.




A comprehensive update on the status of the seasonal passes is listed below:
• State Route 4 (Ebbetts Pass) Open for the summer season
• State Route 89 (Monitor Pass) Open for the summer season
• State Route 108 (Sonora Pass) Open for the summer season
• State Route 120 (Tuolumne County) Open for the summer season. Yosemite National Park remains closed at this time. National Park Service officials manage Tioga Road inside Yosemite National Park. Please call the Park Service for updates at: (209) 372-0200
• State Route 120 (Mono County) Open for the summer season. Yosemite National Park remains closed at this time. National Park Service officials manage Tioga Road inside Yosemite National Park. Please call the Park Service for updates at: (209) 372-0200
• State Route 158 Open for the summer season
• State Route 168 West (Bishop Creek) Open for the summer season

Signs with flashing beacons will have information regarding the pass closures
visible along the highways.
Early season conditions exist and road conditions can change rapidly. All
vehicles, including those with four-wheel drive or snow tires should, additionally,
carry chains when traveling during the spring season. There are minimal services
available and limited mobile phone service along the high elevations of these
Sierra routes. Visitors are advised to have a full tank of gas and to carry extra
food, water and clothing to be prepared for emergencies.

    Yes, thank you for doing a good job. More than that, thank you Gavin for allowing me to leave my basement and explore the outdoors. Give my regards to Aunt Pelosi too!

      /\/\ Yes that's all good! I have actually hiked and camped out quite a few times up in the highway 4 corridor so I know what it looks like. I still practice stay at home orders and have enough things to do around here. I also still wear a mask and observe the 6-foot social distancing. I just go shopping etc. when I need to. So those who want to enjoy the outdoors I say this: still observe the 6-foot distancing and heed to all rules in some of the many businesses that have opened up-if you have to wait in line to get in, then just wait. Thank you, Steven R Smith

          C'mon, grow up Tronald, or whoever you are! I still choose to stay around the home front and go anywhere I want and whenever I want! Not to forget practicing the suggested SIP, mask, and 6-foot distance. It's all these fools out there who I worry about the folks who can't take suggestions! So let's see who outlives who and who has the last laugh LOL! BTW, I DON"T have COVID 19 and is healthy as ever even as an old-timer. According to some of you folks, I don't know s**t! Just go ahead and "push the envelope." For those who cooperate and able to survive through this: we will ALL prevail and be able to NIP THIS IN THE BUD! Good evening!

            Nip this in bud despite our PotUS who does very little to help the average American.
            Encouraging protesters to rebel against their state leaders, while saying it's up to each governor to manage their state.
            Sounds like a breach to his constitutional oath.

              I don't think our POTUS would consider you and your blabbering, whining, 24/7/365 days a year, average.

                On the contrary! You're not very loyal to our POTUS and regardless of party affiliations since right now politics isn' the issue here. You need to learn about the meaning of respect. I think your daddy didn't bend you over his knee and spank you while you were little! thank you!

                  Speaking of bending over, isn't that what you do for visitors in your Woodshed?

          Commenting on someone else's medical status, is out of bounds.

          For the idiot who commented on Mr. Smith, as if he/she/they know anything about his medical condition, please top the low-info comments. First, he doesn't have any kind of COVID. Second, what a mealy-mouthed thing to say.
