Tioga Pass lower gate still closed

Rumors (and at least one Yosemite blogger) are saying that the Tioga Road is open from the east to the top. Not true.

As of Tuesday May 11th, 2010 at noon, the lower gate is still closed. In addition, Mono County crews are starting to plow into the park today, Wednesday May 12th. There are less than 10 miles of snow-covered road left to clear since the NPS crews have reached pothole dome. Once clear, the road doesn’t open immediately due to additional maintenance and avalanche danger.

    We just heard yesterday that Caltrans is working to get the lower gate open by Memorial Day Weekend, but isn’t promising anything sooner at this time.
