Sierra Passes Closed: Highways 120, 108 and 4 on 10/20/17

Last night the Yosemite Blog reported

The Tioga Road and Tioga Pass will be closing at 5pm today, Thursday October 19, 2017, due to the possibility of snow from an approaching weather front. The road will be evaluated Friday morning to determine if it will reopen or remain closed for the season. Currently no overnight parking is allowed along the Tioga Road or the Glacier Point Road.

If the Tioga Road closes Highway 4 (Ebbets Pass) and Highway 108 (Sonora Pass) will most likely close as well.

Please call 209-372-0200 (press 1 then 1) for the most up-to-date road conditions.
