MARIPOSA COUNTY— The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) continues to make progress in clearing a rockslide that occurred on Sunday, January 15, 2023, temporarily closing State Route 140 near Briceburg in Mariposa County. One-way traffic control currently is in place 24 hours a day through the area. There is no limit to vehicle type. Motorists are advised to expect delays.
Caltrans is working as safely and expeditiously as possible to reopen the highway in both directions and is on schedule to complete the project sooner than the initial mid-February estimate, subject to weather, traffic incidents, availability of equipment and/or material, and construction-related issues.
Motorists can access Yosemite National Park via Routes 140, 120, or 41. For Yosemite National Park operations information, contact Scott Gediman, Chief of Media Relations for Yosemite National Park, at email@example.com or 209-742-3519.
