Alpine and Tuolumne Counties– The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has removed the packed winter snow, cleared the debris and made the necessary repairs to open State Route 4 over Ebbetts Pass and State Route 108 over Sonora Pass.
The diligent work of Caltrans crews enabled the opening of the passes for motorists who utilize these routes. The snow totals for the two areas were especially high during this season, with multiple late spring storms affecting the region. Intermittent chain controls were still in effect on the east side of the Sonora Pass as late as last week.
Caltrans crews responsible for the pass openings extend their best wishes for safe summer traveling to those who enjoy the recreational opportunities this part of California has to offer.
