State Route 190 over Towne Pass to remain closed through mid-November

Repairs from Death Valley flooding continues

- Register Staff

Emergency repair work on State Route 190 over Towne Pass in Death Valley National Park will continue through the end of October and into midNovembe­r.

Caltrans has been working for more than a month to reopen the full length of the highway after large sections of it were devastated by flash floods and debris flows in September.

Constructi­on crews have been making progress on the Towne Pass section of the highway, but with parts of the pavement between Panamint Valley Road and Emigrant Junction still not suitable for vehicle traffic, this portion of State Route 190 will remain closed.

State Route 190 is currently open from the junction of U.S. Highway 395 to Panamint Valley Road, and from Emigrant Junction to Death Valley Junction on State Route 127.
