Here are the CABDR closure and route updates for 2/19/19. Because of the recent heavy rain storms along the CABDR there are several closures. Titus Canyon and Mesquite Springs Campground are closed. No time frame for re-opening. The Owens Valley floor has received lots of heavy rain thus making it almost impossible to travel from Lone Pine to Bishop.

In order not to do damage to the valley floor we are asking that everyone please stay off the route from Lone Pine to Benton.
