The northern part of the June Lake Loop 158 usually closes. And so does 120, of course. But I've never seen any of the other nearby state routes closed, like 167, 270, 182.

I've never tried to explore local roads in the area after a snowstorm, and closures on those don't usually show up on Google.

The winter gate on CA 158 is around 3 miles west of the town of June Lake, like so:  https://maps.app.goo.gl/ZhMqtJNhN2b1kDYu9.  At the north end the closure is just a few yards off US 395.

East of US 395, CA 120 is kept open for just a few miles, to the turnoff to the tufa formations in Mono Lake.  The gate at the other end is at Benton Crossing Road (a Mono County road which is usually kept open but can also close for days at a time).  Mono County has a road status page.

CA 167 and CA 182 and their connections in Nevada are almost always open as they serve as bypasses of some snowy parts of US 395.

CA 182 and NV 338 had some extended closures last year, but that was more due to the extreme winter causing slides than anything else. 182/338 and NV 208 are signed as a permanent detour for US 395 through the flood and slide-prone Walker River Canyon.

CA 167 / NV 359 / US 95 and US 6 / NV 360 / US 95 are commonly used by trucks to get around the 2-lane section of 395 thanks to gentler grades and more truck facilities. Even in a car outside of winter, Reno to Bishop is only slightly slower via 95/6 than 395. Trucks are generally directed onto 6 if there is any inclement weather north of Bishop.

Yeah, those routes make sense. But Mono Lake is a nice area to spend a weekend, lots of trails and what not, I've usually had good luck even during the winter with it being open. I guess I'll just try a drive out there soon.

Is there really a business route here? I ve did a virtual tour of Front Street and found no confirmation of shields verifying it.

Also no CA 146 shields along Front Street in Downtown Soledad either especially at East Street where the route goes east. Makes me wonder if Caltrans even maintains Front Street or even East Street for CA 146.

Max Rockatansky:
146 in Soledad was authorized for relinquishment in 2009 and accepted by the city in September 2010:

And no, I’ve never found US 101 Business shields on Front Street.  146 is decently signed though:
