Major reconstruction activities have begun on Rock Creek Road for the duration of the 2014 and 2015 seasons. While the road will remain open to traffic throughout the project, visitors may experience delays of up to 30 minutes. Additionally, at certain times, the road may need to be closed for longer periods of time, Monday through Friday. These closures will be planned approximately 2 weeks in advance of the closure. Please check http://www.fs.usda.gov/inyo/ for updated road closure information prior to your scheduled arrival. Construction will be suspended for Memorial Day weekend, the Independence Day holiday, and Labor Day weekend in order to minimize delays. We thank you in advance for your cooperation during this time.
All Rock Creek recreational activities - hiking, fishing, horseback riding, camping - will remain available throughout the season, and the Rock Creek area businesses look forward to welcoming visitors as they do every year.
This year, re-building of utilities and culverts is planned. Additionally, the reconstruction will begin along the upper part of the Rock Creek Road. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has contracted and will oversee the project that will improve the road, widen it, and provide a bicycle lane. Note that Mono County is not the lead agency on this project, and is providing the above information for public notification purposes only.
