Document Description
Caltrans proposed to rehabilitate and bring to current standards, U.S. Highway 395 in Inyo County near Little Lake from 13.7 kilometers (8.5 miles) to approximately one mile south of Little Lake Road at kilometer post 19.0 (post mile 11.8). The work would include placing an asphalt concrete overlay, realigning two curves (northbound and southbound), widening shoulders to current standards, adding shoulder backing, flattening slopes and modifying the existing drainage system (culvert extensions, rock slope protection, overside drains, etc.). In addition, metal beam guardrails would be placed at some culverts. The existing median between kilometer post 13.8 and R18.2 (post miles R8.6 and R11.3) would be paved. Fences for access control would be erected in locations where new right-of-way is required and utility poles would be removed to achieve a clear recovery zone for the curve realignment.
