Big Oak Flat Road (Highway 120) in Yosemite National Park to Close for Rockslide Repairs
Approximate Six Week Closure Needed to Rebuild Damaged Section of Road
Yosemite National Park announces that the Big Oak Flat Road (Highway 120) within the park will close at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 29, 2012, for the park to repair damage to the road caused by a large rockslide on January 22, 2012. The closure, in effect 24 hours per day, seven days per week, is expected to last until early April. Crews will be working around the clock which necessitates a "hard-closure."
