The second year of major reconstruction on the Rock Creek Road is underway. Work on this project began last year. 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. Also see link to Mammoth Times article on closures.

Here are important updates to the construction plan so that recreationists can plan their visit.

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 the project will be completed. 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 the construction phase of this project.
