June 18, 2019 – La Barr Meadows Road, between McKnight Way and Dog Bar Road, will be closed to through traffic for sinkhole repairs on Monday June 24th through Thursday June 27th, 2019.
Two sinkholes due to historic abandoned mine features were recently discovered on the shoulder of La Barr Meadows Road. As a result, the County has been working with NV5 Geotechnical Engineers and the California Department of Conservation Division of Mine Reclamation to remediate the sinkholes.
