Yosemite Park Rangers announced Highway 120 will reopen Saturday morning at 8am.

Park employees worked throughout the week to clear the road of debris and rocks after a large rock fall covered the road with rocks and debris on Sunday night.

Temporary road closures will be in place next week to allow the park unrestricted access to pave the road. Exact days and times have not been established.

Visitors are asked to call 209-372-0200 for 24-hour updated road and weather information.
