Southern route to Yosemite opening

- — Mary Forgione

The southern entrance and road leading to Yosemite Valley is set to reopen 5 a.m. Monday. A stretch of Big Oak Flat Road had been impassable for two months because of a landslide, forcing travelers to take a 22-mile detour to get to places such as the Majestic Yosemite Hotel and Half Dome Village. Visitors may still encounter traffic delays along Big Oak Flat Road, which connects to State Route 120. One-lane closures may be in effect, and the road will close 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. for several days as crews shore up repairs. Info: (209) 372-0200, press “1” twice, www.lat.ms/yosemitepa­rkroads
