Caltrans: Status of Seasonal Pass Openings

Posted: Updated:

Caltrans announces the status of seasonal pass openings.

Caltrans has been working to clear snow and rocks to repair eight highways that have seasonal closures. Until the roads are clear and open, Caltrans is asking pedestrians, bicyclists, skiers, and others to stay out of these areas.

Caltrans has cleared snow from State Route 120 West to the top of Tioga Pass at the eastern entrance gate of Yosemite National Park. They have repaired the guardrail that was damaged and are continuing to remove snow and rocks from the road.  Caltrans says SR 120 West opened Monday, June 19.

Tioga Road and the east entrance to Yosemite National Park reopened on Thursday, June 29 and bicycles were allowed on Wednesday, June 28.

Crews are also clearing snow from State Route 203 from the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area parking lot to Minaret Vista. They say the snowpack is estimated to be about eight to 15 feet. 

Caltrans doesn't have an estimated date when State Route 203 will reopen.

  • State Route 120 West - Tioga Pass - Opened June 19, 2017, Tioga Road Opened June 29, 2017

    REMSA: Hypothermia and Frostbite Signs to Recognize

    Monday, January 22 2018 9:56 PM EST2018-01-23 02:56:36 GMT

    With the area finally seeing some more winter weather this week, REMSA officials are reminding people to be prepared for anything, during the colder temperatures. So far this winter, REMSA has only responded to about five calls regarding hypothermia and frostbite. Fortunately, that number is down from around 19 this same time last year. But, officials say that is no reason to be lax about winter weather preparedness.
