YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK NEWS RELEASE
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Road Through Yellowstone’s Hayden Valley Reopens
 
The road between Canyon Village and Fishing Bridge through Yellowstone’s Hayden Valley has reopened to visitor traffic.

Visitors are cautioned to reduce their speed well below the posted speed limits through this section of road and can expect reduced visibility due to low-level smoke across the road.

Due to concerns for public safety arising from increased activity on the Alum Fire, this section of road can be closed at any time with little warning.

When temporary closures are effected on this section of road due to the fire, all travel between Canyon Junction and the Fishing Bridge, Lake Village and Bridge Bay area requires a long detour through Old Faithful.

All other roads in Yellowstone are open, as are all park entrances, lodging, stores, campgrounds and other visitor services.

Updated park road information is available 24 hours a day by calling 307-344-2117. You can also follow the park on Twitter @YellowstoneNPS and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/YellowstoneNPS.
