BISHOP — The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has announced a prohibition for high profile campers, trailers or permit loads to travel on U.S. Hwy 395 from Pearsonville to Bishop.

Severe cross winds have been recorded along the route. Several big rig trucks and travel trailers have over-turned due to wind.

Southbound US Highway 395 is temporarily closed at Coso Junction due to an over-turned truck blocking both lanes.

Exit 65 on State Route 58 is closed due to high winds.

Caltrans and other agencies are busy keeping the traveling public safe on our roads. Debris, snow and sand, blown by winds can pose a significant threat on the roadway. The traveling public is advised to drastically slow down and proceed with caution.
