Closure will be in effect from 11:00 pm to 5:00 am on Sunday, June 4, 2017

Yosemite National Park will close the Big Oak Flat Road to all vehicular traffic, from Crane Flat to Foresta, in order to finish repairs and repave the road. This closure will be in place from 11:00 pm on Sunday, June 4, 2017 to 5:00 am on Monday, June 5, 2017. This night closure is necessary for the safety of all motorists. Paving will continue throughout the day on Monday, June 5 and Tuesday, June 6, with single-lane closures and up to 15 minutes delays. This road project is necessary to finalize recent repairs to the Big Oak Flat Road, which was damaged in February.

The El Portal Road (Highway 140) and the Wawona Road (Highway 41) are open and clear for all vehicular traffic to access Yosemite Valley and Wawona. Visitors traveling to and from Yosemite National Park are urged to drive with caution, follow posted speed limits, and be aware of rocks and debris on the roadway.

Tioga Road remains closed for the season. Park road crews are working to clear snow and debris from the roadway. As soon as we are able, the park will release an opening date.
