Four-hour Closures, Convict Lake Road, Oct. 6-8

Staff Writer

A four-hour closure for the Convict Lake Road project is scheduled to set the precast pedestrian bridge slabs, according to the U.S. Forest Service. This closure will take place on October 6-8, from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. 
The closure will begin just after the turn into the Convict Lake Marina parking area; people traveling to and from the campground will be most affected.

As always, your patience is appreciated while this necessary work is completed that will significantly improve the experience in upcoming years. The entire roadway is being  reconstructed from the intersection  with U.S. 395 to the day-use parking area at the end of the road on the east side of the lake. The roadway will be widened in some spots in order to provide a consistent pavement width and a paved shoulder. A bicycle lane will be provided on the uphill side. The road will be repaved, striped, and new regulatory and warning signs will be installed at the completion of the project.— WG
