Death Valley Road Condition Update 8/20/22

from Death Valley National Park

With no additional rains yesterday, crews from Death Valley, joined by staff from Lake Mead, Rocky Mountain, Yosemite, and Redwood national parks were able to reopen Dantes View and the first 17 miles of Badwater Road.
However, with more rain in the forecast, and hundreds of miles of roads to assess and clear or rebuild, road conditions are subject to change. We will continue to update our Current Conditions on our website, including the map pictured here. https://www.nps.gov/deva/planyourvisit/conditions.htm – Look to this as the best source of up-to-date information.

If traveling to the park, expect Death Valley’s famous summertime heat to be joined by dusty conditions, as winds and vehicles kicking up dust are causing hazardous driving conditions.
For the safety of these hardworking road crews, drive responsibly in low visibility conditions, slow down as you pass, and give them plenty of space.
