Tioga Pass Road Opens Only to Park Gate Today, May 12

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is opening the lower gate on State Route 120 West (Tioga Pass) to the Yosemite National Park entrance gate today at 10 a.m. Snow and debris has been removed and work has been completed to ensure the traveling public’s safety.

State Route 120 west (Tioga Road) will remain closed at the Yosemite National Park entrance. The road through the park is not open and there is no estimated opening date, at this time, according to Caltrans.

This partial opening is dependent upon favorable weather and verification that the highway is safe for users. If the area is impacted by inclement weather Caltrans may have to reclose the highway. Please check local highway conditions before planning to use SR 120 West.
