Expect delays on Rock Creek Road

Staff Writer

The second year of major reconstruction on the Rock Creek Road is underway. Work on this project began last year.
 Mono County requested the funding and the work is being completed on Mono County roads. The Federal Highway Administration has contracted and oversees the project that will improve the road, widen it, and provide a bicycle lane along a nine-mile stretch between the Rock Creek Pack Station and Crowley Lake Drive. Work this year is between the Rock Creek Pack Station to the lower end of the construction near Tom’s Place.
Here are important updates to the construction plan so that recreationists can plan their visit.
 Paving
Starting June 15, there will be no parking the last six miles of the construction area while they pave the road. Weekend work is necessary to complete this paving. In addition to 30 minute delays during the week, there will also be 30 minute delays on Friday, June 19, Saturday, June 20, and Friday June 26. Crews will not be working on Sunday, June 21. This paving will be completed on June 26.
