    I drive that portion of 395 several times a year. It’s dangerous. And compounding the danger is that it’s so darn pretty. It’s easy to get distracted by the view and some of those curves are difficult at 45mph. This is not a frivolous project. That small stretch of 395 is probably the most dangerous portion of 395 between Mammoth and Reno. Except for Walker Canyon when it’s icy.
