Via press release from Caltrans:
“The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has been working on clearing snow, removing rocks, and repairing the road to open State Route 120 West to the east Yosemite Park entrance gate. It is anticipated that the road will reopen from winter closure on Friday, April 29th, 2016 at noon, weather and safety permitting. Caltrans’ number one priority is safety for the traveling public and highway maintenance crews. State Route 120 west will remain closed at the Yosemite Park entrance.
“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 not be able to open the highway as anticipated. Please check local highway conditions before planning to use SR 120 west.”
