It's Official...On Your Mark Set Go!!

Lake Alpine, CA....It's official, the gates have swung open and the road signs have been changed. The high country is calling. Sonora pass may not get opened till next Wednesday. Alpine County – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has removed the winter snow, cleared the debris and made the necessary repairs to open State Route 4 over Ebbetts Pass on Friday, April 13, 2016, at Noon.

The diligent work of Caltrans crews enabled the opening of the pass for motorists who utilize this route. To see some of the challenges that come with opening the mountain routes, visit www.dot.ca.gov/paffairs/newsflash.html for the latest Caltrans News Flash.

Caltrans extends its best wishes for safe summer traveling to those who enjoy the recreational opportunities this area of California has to offer.

Winter weather and road conditions can change rapidly. Motorists should expect the worst conditions and be prepared when traveling in areas subject to hazardous conditions.
