Yosemite’s Tioga Road to re­open to­day

Lodi News-Sentinel - - Page Two -

Tioga Road in Yosemite Na­tional Park is set to re­open at 8 a.m. to­day, if weather con­di­tions per­mit.

Snowmelt on the road­way and in­fra­struc­ture re­pairs were two of the fac­tors that kept High­way 120/Tioga Road closed, ac­cord­ing to the Modesto Bee.

The road’s re­open­ing will al­low peo­ple from the Sacra­mento-area and San Joaquin Val­ley to travel into Yosemite Na­tional Park from the west. High­way 120 goes through Yosemite Na­tional Park to Mono Lake.

Vis­i­tors should use cau­tion since there may be dirt, de­bris and wa­ter on some sec­tions of the road, ac­cord­ing to a re­lease from the Na­tional Park Ser­vice.

The Na­tional Park Ser­vice also said that mo­torists should drive slowly as bears and other an­i­mals may still be roam­ing the road.
