Visitors are urged to drive with caution

Media Contacts: Scott Gediman (209) 742-3519; Kari Cobb (209) 742-3520

The Highway 140 entrance into Yosemite National Park will re-open as of Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 8:00 a.m. The highway, referred to as El Portal Road within the park boundary, was closed on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 due to the Dog Rock Fire. Additionally, electrical power to Yosemite Valley is expected to be restored late this evening, Friday, October 10, 2014. Power has been out in Yosemite Valley since the evening of October 7.

The cause of the Dog Rock Fire is believed to have been sparks generated by hot metal fragments from a vehicle. Agencies assisting with the Dog Rock Fire include the U.S. Forest Service, CAL Fire, National Park Service, and other local government agencies.

Upon opening of the road, visitors are urged to drive with caution along Highway 140 as firefighting crews are still present along the roadway. Additionally, hazards such as rocks and other debris may be present. Visitors are also advised not to stop along the roadway, as the fire area is closed for recreational activities.
