After a temporary closure, the Tioga Road in Yosemite National Park reopened to the public at 1 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 25. The Tioga Road, the popular east-west crossing of the Sierra Nevada in the northern portion of the park, had been temporarily closed due to snow and ice. Visitors are urged to drive with caution as there may still be ice and snow along the roadway.
The Glacier Point Road remains closed for the season.
All roads within the Yosemite National Park are subject to chain control or temporary closures due to hazardous driving conditions.
