Mono County Pavement Damage

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Heavy snow and rain from January, February, and March storm events prolonged the traveling public’s use of heavy chain and studded tires. This caused accelerated pavement damage at localized locations and the top level of asphalt to strip off parallel to the surface resulting in extensive potholes on SR 158 and US 395 in and near June Lake, on US 395 near Bridgeport, and on SR 203 in Mammoth Lakes. The damage exceeds the Caltrans maintenance crew's capacity and an emergency project was urgently needed to beto repair the damaged pavement for the safety of the traveling public, and to provide relief for Caltrans Highway Maintenance crews. The project was necessary to prevent or mitigate loss of, or damage to, life, health, property, or essential public services.
