Project Purpose:

The purpose of the Mono Winter Access Parking project is to provide designated paved parking areas for recreational users of the Inyo National Forest trail system. To accomplish this, Caltrans proposes to pave two existing dirt lots (locations 1 and 3) as well as clear vegetation and pave a third area (location 2). Creating a new parking area at location 2 will allow the US Forest Service to decommission an existing parking area approximately 500 feet east of the new site. The area to be cleared and paved is approximately 0.86 acres. Approximately 1.7 acres will be paved in total for all three locations.
