Popular Road into Yosemite National Park Closed Since Tuesday due to Mudslides and Debris
The El Portal Road (continuation of Highway 140) into Yosemite National Park will re-open at 6:00 p.m. this evening to all vehicular traffic. Intermittent traffic delays are possible due to on-going clean-up operations.
Yosemite National Park road crews and law enforcement rangers worked extended shifts to get the road open as soon as possible and make it safe for travel.
The popular road into Yosemite National Park has been closed since Tuesday evening due to mud and debris on the road as a result of heavy rains.
Yosemite National Park would like to thank Caltrans, the California Highway Patrol, and the Mariposa County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance during the temporary closure.
