State Route 270 (SR 270), also known as Bodie Road, is a state highway in the U.S. state of California. It is a spur route off of U.S. Route 395 south of Bridgeport in Mono County, leading into Bodie State Historic Park.

Route description

Looking west toward the Sierra Nevada on Hwy 270 outside Bodie, CA - 26 August 2012

The route connects U.S. Route 395 with Bodie State Historic Park. About 3.5 miles (5.6 km) before entering this park, which holds a preserved ghost town, the road becomes unpaved and is maintained by the California Department of Parks and Recreation (California State Parks) instead of Caltrans.[2]

SR 270 is not part of the National Highway System,[3] a network of highways that are considered essential to the country's economy, defense, and mobility by the Federal Highway Administration.[4]

Major intersections

Except where prefixed with a letter, postmiles were measured on the road as it was in 1964, based on the alignment that existed at the time, and do not necessarily reflect current mileage. R reflects a realignment in the route since then, M indicates a second realignment, L refers to an overlap due to a correction or change, and T indicates postmiles classified as temporary (for a full list of prefixes, see California postmile § Official postmile definitions).[1] Segments that remain unconstructed or have been relinquished to local control may be omitted. The entire route is in Mono County.
