Road conditions update: good news and bad news

May 28th, 2010 by Elin, Communications Coordinator

First the bad news:
According to Yosemite National Park Superintendent Don Neubacher, Tioga Pass (Highway 120) will not open for this Memorial Day weekend. No opening date is in sight, but crews are working hard to open the road for the busy summer season. Stay tuned here to the Mono-logue and check the California Department of Transportation website for the latest news.

Sonora Pass (Highway 108) is not open. (As of 5pm it is open)

The good news:

Monitor Pass (Highway 89) has reopened today, according to the Bishop CalTrans office.

Luckily, the lower gate on the east side of Tioga Pass is now open, allowing skiers easy access to the abundant new snow in the Tioga Pass area.
