State Route 167 (SR 167) is a state highway in the U.S. state of California in Mono County. From U.S. Route 395 it runs north of Mono Lake eastward to the Nevada state line where it meets State Route 359. At the west point of this highway, it runs almost directly east to west, and can be seen almost 15 miles (24 km) into the distance as a straight line.

This route is part of the California Freeway and Expressway System[2] and is eligible for the State Scenic Highway System.[3]

Route description[edit]

SR 167 begins with an at-grade intersection with U.S. Route 395. The road then heads northeastward in a straight line, moving slightly north of the north shore of Mono Lake. The route continues in a straight line through a barren landscape in Mono County where it intersects Dobie Meadows Road. SR 167 meets its eastern terminus at the Nevada state line. The road continues as Nevada State Route 359 through Mineral County.[4]

Major intersections[edit]

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 an overlap due to a correction or change, and T indicates postmiles classified as temporary (for a full list of prefixes, see the list of postmile definitions).[1] Segments that remain unconstructed or have been relinquished to local control may be omitted. The entire route is in Mono County.
