This road received storm damage after the substantial snowpack from this
winter and the subsequent melt-off and flooding.

The forest's Engineering Crew rebuilt a segment of the road that was
structurally compromised and unstable. They placed layers of compacted fill
and concrete curbing on the road's edge to stabilize the road bed. The crew
placed concrete barriers and K Rail along other areas where longitudinal
cracking was observed to keep vehicles off these cracks to prevent further


The mandatory Reds Meadow Shuttle Bus will run starting Friday. Only
exception vehicles will be allowed to drive into the Reds Meadow Valley.

The Minaret Falls, Reds Meadow, Upper Soda Springs, and the Pumice Flat
Campgrounds will openon Friday.  Inyo National Forest water systems are
being tested for potability, so hikers and campers should bring their own
water.  Porta potties will be available at Reds Meadow and Pumice Flat
Campgrounds. The Reds Meadow Resort and Pack Station is open with camping

"There has been an impressive amount of work that has gone into getting the
road open," said Jon Regelbrugge, District Ranger for the Mammoth and Mono
Lake Ranger Districts. "We ask for our visitors patience while we continue
the work to get all services operational."


The Devils Postpile Ranger Station will be open daily, 9:00 am -5:00 pm. As
a reminder, wilderness permits are issued at the Welcome Center in Mammoth
Lakes-not at the Ranger Station. Potable water and flush toilets are
available at the Ranger Station.  The Devils Postpile Campground is not
opening this year. Trail crews are repairing the damages on the trail to the
base of Rainbow Falls, which will remain closed until work is completed.

The roads in the Reds Meadow Valley are narrow and visibility is limited.
All vehicles should use caution on both the Reds Meadow and Devils Postpile


The Reds Meadow shuttle is tentatively scheduled to commence operation for
the 2017 season on Friday, July 21st.  The opening is dependent upon
completion of final repairs and preparation work.  Once in operation, the
shuttle operates from 7:30am until 7:00pm, with the last departure from Reds
Meadow Resort at 7:45pm, and will operate seven days/week through September
6th.  Further information about the Reds Meadow Shuttle is available at
