Damaged Power Equipment Replaced In Yosemite

Yosemite, CA — All roads heading into Yosemite National Park are now back open.

Highway 140 was closed for a while over the weekend so that high voltage power lines could be replaced that were damaged by the Ferguson Fire. The lines help provide power to Yosemite Valley. The work required bringing in helicopters and heavy equipment, which prompted a complete closure of Highway 140. Yosemite reports that the work is now done and Highway 140 is back open.
