November 6, 2023 - On the Olancha-Cartago 4-Lane Project, pavement has finally arrived for the new lanes of U.S. 395 in Inyo County. Crews have been laying asphalt at the southern end of the project near Grant and Olancha. These images, taken 15 months apart at the same location, show the considerable progress made where a Southern Pacific Railroad track once existed. Construction crews will lay three layers of asphalt for the lanes and two for the shoulders. Crews have laid approximately 70,000 tons of asphalt to date.
