Caltrans District 9 encompasses the central-east portion of the State with its headquarters in Bishop. The District is responsible for all of the State Highway Systems in Inyo, Mono and eastern Kern Counties.
In geographical size, District 9 is the fourth largest District covering 16,465 square miles, containing varied topography. Mount Whitney (the highest peak in the lower 48 states) is less than 150 miles from Bad Water, Death Valley (the lowest point in the US). There are several State highways that cross the Sierra Nevada mountain range; one leading to the east entrance of Yosemite National Park. The District is in the western portion of the Great Basin, which includes the Owens Valley, bordered by the White and Inyo Mountains to the east and the Sierra to the west. The Mojave Desert encompasses parts of Inyo, San Bernardino, and eastern Kern Counties. The varied topography and elevation lend to a wide range of climate zones.
The District has 19 US and State designated highways.
