Caltrans statement.

BISHOP – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) would like to inform the traveling public that State Route 168 will have intermittent two hour closures, up to four times a day due to the Cal Tech telescope relocation project.

The highway will be closed due to accommodate the oversized load of the telescopes that are being moved from Cedar Flat to Big Pine.  The closures will be intermittent and will last approximately 20 minutes starting at 6:00 am until 3:30 pm.

The traveling public should expect up to two hour delays while traveling along State Route 168.  Use an alternate route if possible.
