Tioga And Glacier Point Roads Close In Yosemite

YOSEMITE — Current winter storm activity has created hazardous driving conditions along Tioga Road. Yosemite National Park has closed Tioga Road from from Crane Flat to Lee Vining. This closure will be in place until further notice.

Tioga Road typically closes each fall and remains closed throughout the winter months. The road reopens when weather and road conditions permit in the spring. Yosemite National Park is open year-round with snow removal on all other roads within the park.

All roads within the park are subject to chain control or temporary closures due to hazardous driving conditions. All motorists are required to carry tire chains, even if their car is equipped with four-wheel drive, while driving in the park during the winter months.

With several major storms expected in the Yosemite area this weekend, Yosemite National Park is closing Glacier Point Road at 5 p.m., on Saturday Oct. 29. This closure will be in place until further notice.
