Lee Vining Rehab Project map

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 9 is planning a resurfacing, restoration, and rehabilitation project to improve safety, accessibility, and mobility along the US 395 corridor through Lee Vining and adjacent to Mono Lake.

Why this project is needed:

US 395 through Lee Vining currently faces a variety of safety, accessibility, drainage, and design challenges, including the following:

  • The road pavement is nearing the end of its lifespan
  • Some sidewalks and curb ramps need upgrades to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards
  • Pedestrian crossings could use enhancements to create safe, accessible, and aesthetically pleasing walkways
  • Drainage systems need upgrades in order to capture winter/spring runoff
  • Bicycle facilities could be developed to accommodate commuter and recreational cyclists

Project Area

The project area, which covers approximately 5 miles, includes US 395 from SR 120 to Cemetery Road. The corridor runs through Lee Vining with commercial uses lining the corridor, on-street parking, and speed limits of 25-30 mph. North and south of Lee Vining, US 395 is a highway with fast-moving traffic.

Project Status

The Lee Vining Rehabilitation project is currently in the planning stage. Caltrans is performing a public outreach campaign to receive community input on project features. Planned construction of the project is tenatively scheduled for 2025.
