Tioga Road, Hwy 120, Opens To Public May 7
Tioga Road Opens To Public May 7
We are excited to announce that Tioga Road has opened this morning at 7:00 a.m. for all administrative traffic and is scheduled to open to our visiting public at 12:00 noon on May 7th. This has been one of our earliest road openings for the Tioga Road and probably the shortest winter road closure in the history of the park. Please drive safely as there are numerous vehicles performing critical road repairs throughout the corridor. The opening of the road is wonderful news. Unfortunately, the park staff will only be able to provide limited services along Tioga Road because of the loss of commercial power. Southern California Edison is in the process of locating and repairing two transmission line sites in Lee Vining Canyon. Once they provide reliable power, the park will be able to support our staff and visitors with traditional services.
