Currently, the only outside access to Yosemite Valley is via Highway 140.
Here’s the information that may keep you sane and alive if you’re heading up to the park this weekend.
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.
More rain is expected tonight but with any luck Yosemite Valley is set to reopen tomorrow at 8AM.
All roads leading into Yosemite Valley will close today at 5:00 pm in anticipation of a significant winter storm moving into the region early tomorrow morning, Saturday, January 7, 2017.
