INDEPENDENCE, Calif., (KOLO)-- U.S. 395 is back open in both directions south of Independence in Inyo County after a culvert repair.
The California Department of Transportation closed northbound traffic due to possible flooding from a culvert. Caltrans set up a detour at that time.
Caltrans and Department of Water and Power crews repaired the failed culvert and reopened the road on Wednesday.
Independence is about 250 miles south of Reno and northwest of Death Valley.
