Sonora and Tioga Passes Closing today
Caltrans will be closing State Route 108, Sonora Pass at 4pm today (Wednesday, May 13th). Caltans officials indicate this closure is due to a incoming storm. In addition, Yosemite National Park will close State Route 120, Tioga Pass at 8pm tonight in advance of expected adverse weather.
Caltrans reminds folks that as is often the case this time of year, closure of mountain passes occur due to weather conditions. Caltrans notes that crews closely monitor highways to determine if it is safe for the traveling public.
