Glacier Point Road Reopens In Yosemite

YOSEMITE – Yosemite National Park officials have announced that, as of 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 28, the Glacier Point Road is once again open to all vehicular traffic, including bicycles.

The road was closed at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 25, due to an accumulation of snow and the pending arrival of another series of late-season storms set to create hazardous conditions.

Once the storm systems passed, the road was evaluated for hazards and reopened today, when it was agreed that conditions are safe for vehicular traffic.

Yosemite National Park is open. Tire chains may be required at any time depending on road conditions. If you encounter a “chains required sign,” do not proceed unless you have chains in possession or installed (depending on what the sign indicates). Temporary road closures may go into effect at any time due to road and weather conditions.

For updated 24-hour road and weather conditions for Yosemite National Park, please call 209-372-0200, press 1 and press 1 again.

Updated information is also available on the park’s website at www.nps.gov/yose.
