Highway 4 Ebbetts Pass was the last to close on Halloween just 1.3 miles west of the east end of Lake Alpine, Highway 108 Sonora Pass was closed at Kennedy Meadows Saturday evening. Both reopened today.

Highway 120 Tioga Pass remains closed. Yosemite National Park spokesperson Jamie Richards explains, “There is still ice and other hazards on the road that create hazardous driving conditions for motorists. At this point and time, there is no clear indication when we will reopen the road.”
