View Full Version : Edison: Road Closed

07-21-2006, 08:10 PM
Our plans to hit Edison this weekend were cancelled when we found out the gate was closed. Rumor has it that there is a washout on 168 beyond Kaiser pass. There are other rumors, but this one is the most plausible. (one rumor is that the darn has some 'problems', but I think they'd evacuate, not lock people in).

I've got a call in to a buddy who works in the high sierra district, and will post up once I get his call back, but for now, no access in or out.

Ok, the darn is fine, but the road is either blocked by a large boulder (USFS Prather), or is washed out (mono hot springs). They're working on it this morning, no word yet as to a timeline for re-opening.

It turns out that a boulder rolled into a culvert causing a washout. Traffic is being detoured through Big Creek on Stump Springs Rd. which comes out at Sample Meadows. (LOOONG detour!) FS says the road may be open as early as tomorrow, but not certain.

Yes, it's Edison Lake above Fresno.
