YOSEMITE – Highway 140 in Yosemite National Park near the El Portal entrance reopened at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 23, to all traffic in both directions. Intermittent traffic delays may be possible for continued road clearing work in the coming days.
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.
