Inyo County:

The Whitney Portal Road Construction project begins on Tuesday, March 1st.
Crews will start on the first 7 miles of the 11 mile project, with construction activities starting about ½ mile west of Hwy. 395 and moving up the road about 1-2 miles each day during the first stages of construction.

Construction Schedule: Mondays-Thursdays, 6:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Expect delays between 15 - 30 minutes. Flaggers and a pilot car will manage traffic, allowing alternating two-way traffic.

Hat Creek Construction Materials Inc. understands that no one enjoys delays and we assure you that we will make every effort to minimize your delays while providing the necessary safety for the you and our workers.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
