The Big Oak Flat Road into Yosemite Valley will be closed on Feb 29. This is Hwy 120 from Groveland into the Valley. In January, a rockfall near the Foresta Road area (above the Hwy 140 junction) caused road damage that was fixed. However, the Federal Highway Administration has determined that damage was more severe than first thought and major repairs will go on until April. Access to Yosemite Valley until then is solely via Hwy 140 or 41. They Hwy 120 entrance will remain opened allowing access to areas north of the closure.
