Cool photos! The new pavement really makes a difference


Edit: Anyone reading this: the project completed in November, 2016. See the first post in this thread.

Looks like the new road has some debris already...

Well, the new road is closed, and there are "a few gouges" in that brand new pavement.
I'm trying to find out if the gate is locked down below now, but people might read this thread: Road closed to Portal

These pics were posted today by the Inyo County Sheriff's Office on their Facebook page.

Doug from the Whitney Portal Store shared some pictures (link) of the slide taken by his crew. They headed up to the Whitney Portal Store several days ago.
