This is what the storm damage in Yosemite looks like, and this is what it means

State Route 120 will be closed indefinitely for repairs, forcing Yosemite Valley-bound drivers to detour via State Route 140.

The storm damage that closed two key roads into Yosemite National Park is likely to keep State Route 41 closed for several more days and State Route 120 shut for an unknown period that’s likely to be much longer.

The closure of State route 41 means northbound park visitors need to make a detour once they reach Oakhurst.

That detour, by State Route 49, will take drivers north to Mariposa before they enter the park on State Route 140, also known as El Portal Road.

That detour, prompted by damage on the 41 just north of Fish Camp, is likely to last through March 10, Caltrans updates indicate. Travelers can check for updates here.
