Western Divide & Kern River Hwy?

Thinking about a run from Los Angeles up to Shaver/Huntington Lake in a couple weeks and I was going to meander up from Bakersfield and use the Kern River Hwy out of Lake Isabella to the Western Divide and continue through to 3 Rivers area. I thought I read here that there was a lot of construction going on somewhere along this route, but darned if I can relocate the thread. So, can anyone speak to the road conditions?

thx
Brad

Re: Western Divide & Kern River Hwy?

Hwy 178 (Kern Canyon) is open without any serious delay. Can't say about Western Divide. It should be clear of snow but Winter damage repair? I dunno. You might want to ride Hwy 155 instead of 178, MUCH better ride.

Here's another option;

Granite Rd (or 155) to Jack Ranch Rd to Old Stage Rd to Hwy 190 and East to Springville.

Thanks. I agree and never use 178. Granite Rd. to 155 to the Kern River Hwy (Sierra Way?) is my regular path to start my Sierra rides. I may have confused things with a poor memory? Thanks for the alternate route up to Porterville area; I'll use that if there is anything up with the Divide. I've never done Sherman Pass and that may be in the cards too...
