On October 7, 2011, the California State Legislature passed Assembly Bill 628, which allows for Inyo County to establish a pilot project to designate combined-use highway segments up to 10 miles long on unincorporated County roads to link existing off-highway-vehicle (OHV) trails and trailheads on federal Bureau of Land Management or United States Forest Service lands, and to link OHV recreational-use areas with necessary service and lodging facilities, in order to provide a unified system of OHV trails in the Owens Valley. The portion of the combined-use routes that are inside of the City of Bishop are being designated pursuant to the California Vehicle Code which permits up to three miles to be so designated. The proposed combined-use routes are all on existing streets and roads that are part of the Inyo County and City of Bishop Maintained Mileage Systems.
