Update: Rockfall Cleared In Yosemite

Sponsored by:

Update at 4:45 pm: The road will reopen today, Monday, April 8th at 6 pm. Yosemite Park extends special thanks to the road crews for their efforts in cleaning and patching the roadway.

Original story at 6:11 Yosemite, CA — A significant road closure is limiting access to Yosemite National Park.

The Big Oak Flat Road, an extension, of Highway 120, is closed from the Foresta Junction to the intersection of El Portal Road (extension of Highway 140) due to a rockfall.

Park crews are still assessing whether the rockfall is active. The National Park Service anticipates the closure to last until at least Tuesday evening, April 9. We will pass along more information when it becomes available.
