One Response to Caltrans lane closures for this week

    Been doing the commute between Lone Pine and Bishop these last 4 months . The chip seal projects are well managed traffic wise but I do have questions regarding chip seal , rolling resistance in regards to MPG and tire wear . For several years south bound on 395 in Rose Valley has been a noisy rough ride especially noted when you arrive at the original road surface below Little Lake. The same can be said of the transititon from the new chip and seal surface on the northbound 395 just above Warm Springs Road.
    There is a notable increase in friction 25% according to a Washington State study that benefits traction ,braking, etc and the costs of Chip seal are way below old school normal pavement resurfacing. They are currently working on the southbound side of 395 between the Poverty Hills and Fort Independence and have to say the commute is a rough ride. The guy painting the lines especially between Big Pine and Bishop needs more practice or must have been texting or something because the straight lines applied previously by CaLTrans are now only a memory. I do complain a lot but straight lines are a safety issue and Cal trans needs to have a talk with the folks fixing up our 395 before they pay em our valuable tax dollars.
