Caltrans opens Tioga, Sonora, and Monitor
Mono County – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has removed the snow, cleared the debris and made the necessary repairs to open, Monitor Pass (SR 89), Sonora Pass (SR 108) and Tioga Pass (SR 120).
Caltrans opened the passes for the spring season on Friday, April 17th, 2015 but closed the passes last week due to weather conditions.
Caltrans crews responsible for the road opening extend their best wishes for safe summer traveling to those who enjoy the recreational opportunities California has to offer.
Winter weather and road conditions can change rapidly. Motorists should expect the worst conditions and be prepared when traveling in areas subject to hazardous conditions. All vehicles, including those with four-wheel drive or snow tires should, additionally, carry chains when traveling during snowy weather.
