Tioga Pass in Yosemite--a work in progress
This from the official website: July 14, 2023 (updated every Friday)
Tioga Road is clear of snow all the way to Tioga Pass, however, Tioga Road will not open this weekend. We are optimistic it will open before the end of the July.
The following work is in progress:
Clearing snow from side roads and parking lots, and boulders from Tioga Road
Removing trees in danger of falling onto the road
Extensive repairs and hantavirus inspections to buildings.
When the road opens to the public, visitors should expect short delays associated with traffic lights at damaged locations, and longer delays when contractors are making repairs.
Utility crews discovered a torn line at the sewage ponds. The wastewater treatment plant cannot operate until the liner is repaired and groundwater level lowers. The park is contracting for portable toilets and pumping of vault toilets. Tioga Road will open when sanitation and public safety requirements are met.
In some years, Tioga Road opens to cyclists for a day or a few days prior to the road opening to vehicles. They will announce that on the NPS site,
It was a crazy winter!
