Conway Ranch Shoulder Widening Project

Project Information

The Conway Ranch Shoulder Widening Project is widening the existing paved shoulders on U.S 395 from the junction with State Route 167 to 0.4 miles north of Conway Ranch Road in Mono County. It will also install shoulder rumble strips, correct a substandard compound curve and lengthen the chain control area at postmile 59.2 by 500 feet. Culverts will be extended or replaced as needed.

Other details of the project include:

  • Installing 12-inch shoulder rumble strips
  • Replacing and rehabilitating existing culverts

  • Installing lighting systems for chain-up areas
