Dangerous curve on U.S. 395 to be fixed


One of the most dangerous spots of U.S. 395 is about to be fixed, Mammoth Public Works Director Ray Jarvis said.

It’s the series of curves just to the south of Topaz Lake, he told the Mammoth Town Council Wednesday night.

Instead of a series of sharp curves, the road is to be rebuilt into a single curve.

That’s good news for travelers northbound from Mammoth and southbound from Reno, but it will be a pain in the neck for about a year as Caltrans crews do the work, rerouting travelers after midnight.

Under the plan construction crews will create a detour from Holbrook Junction to Bridgeport, adding considerable time to the journey.
