Road Closures due to Flooding Runoff from the historic snowpack in the Sierra has closed several Inyo County roads. Residents and visitors are reminded that some roads are equipped with gates that physically block vehicle access; other roads rely on signage to inform the public. A road closure is meant to block all vehicular traffic; this includes motorized vehicles (ATVs, motorcycles, cars).

Emergency response personnel are often asked:

Can I walk, ride a bike, or ski past a road closure?

If there is road construction or a road clearing operation there may be an additional sign posted stating “No Pedestrian Traffic”; If you see this sign you may not enter on foot, skis, or bicycle. If you do not see this sign you may walk, ski, or ride a bicycle at your own risk.

What could happen if I ignore a road closure?

Ignoring a posted sign is an infraction and you may be cited under CA Vehicle Code 21461(a).
