    Default The Big Oak Flat Road (continuation of Highway 120 west into Yosemite) is closed

    https://abc30.com/yosemite-national-...road/13213231/

    Park officials say Big Oak Flat Road, the continuation of Highway 120 into Yosemite, is closed between the park boundary and Merced Grove due to a crack in the road.

    The park will be working with the Federal Highway Administration to start repairs but the road is expected to be closed until at least mid-June and possibly into July.

    Yeah, looks like a situation that is going to get much worse before they get it fixed.

    Default Targeting to re-open June 10th

    The contractors working on the road are said to be working 7 days a week to resolve this and barring any unforseen circumstances hope to have it open (with some delays) on June 10th.
