With the reopening of Highway 41 from Fresno (at least in part) you’re probably wondering when the Big Oak Flat Road will reopen connecting Yosemite with it’s western neighbors along Highway 120. Well the official word is, not any time soon.
Category: Road Conditions
Currently, the only outside access to Yosemite Valley is via Highway 140.
The Big Oak Flat Road and El Portal Road have reopened to traffic into Yosemite Valley but we’re not out of the woods yet. Snow and heavy rains are expected to continue into this weekend with a flood warning in effect until Saturday.
Rock fall has temporarily closed the Big Oak Flat Road into and out of the park.
If you’re planning on heading up to Yosemite Valley best check the road conditions before you head out.
But don’t shelve your plans to visit Yosemite just yet, closed roads means more snow which means Badger Pass…errr…Yosemite Ski and Snowboard Area…may get to open soon.
The rocks have been cleared and the road is now open to traffic again.
