avatar Massive Mudslide Closes Highway 395
August 26, 2010 09:40PM
Thursday afternoon water, mud and debris rushed down a canyon in the Sierra over Highway 395 in the Dunmovin' area south of Olancha. A big rig was washed off the highway. 395 remained closed as Caltrans organized a major clean-up effort. Susan Lent, Caltrans PIO, said that hard closures were set northbound at Coso Rest Area and southbound at Olancha. Closures were also enforced on Highway 190 due to a road wash-out east of Panamint Springs to two miles west of Panamint Springs.
