Hwy 140 to Yosemite Update

Our partners at the CHP – Mariposa will escort motorists from the Yosemite Bug (Midpines) to the State Route 140 Yosemite National Park gate (El Portal) at 6:00 a.m. on Mon., Jan. 23. CHP will then make a return trip and escort traffic from the park gate to Midpines at approximately 7:00 a.m.
At 6:00 p.m. on Jan. 23, CHP will escort motorists from the Route 140 YNP gate to Midpines.
Motorists who miss these windows will be turned around.
Barring any setbacks, one-way traffic control will be employed from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily, beginning Tues., Jan. 24, until both lanes of Route 140 are fully reopened.
Both directions of Route 140 have been closed between Midpines and El Portal since Jan. 15 due to a rockslide. Crews are making excellent progress clearing the slide and stabilizing the slope.
We thank our partners with CHP Mariposa for their hard work and assistance to make this happen.
