Just like you're saying, 395 has been an issue for decades! Why the morons in charge haven't done something about the problem is hard to say. It's an obvious problem. It should have been a priority long, long ago. Just goes to show that bureaucrats and politicians often are useless, which may be a big part of why people don't bother voting. There's no accountability to the public.

The Dangers of Highway 395
There's no excuse for 395 still being only one lane in each direction through most of San Bernardino County.

Last I heard there's no way to get to the Wildrose Charcoal Kilns by car. The road up from Panamint Valley is washed out and the road through Emigrant Canyon is damaged also. Usually this means the park service wants to close the area due to some kind of crime or vandalism situation so they can have time to investigate, but maybe this time it's legitimate. Back around 2000 they closed the area after rumors about a lost treasure being found near Pinto Peak were reported in various message boards. At that time they lied and said it was due to some other issue, but that was just a cover story.
