Great news for the folks heading in from Sacramento and the Bay Area! NPS announced that the Big Oak Flat Road is re-opening tomorrow morning at 8am. That section of the road surface is still currently gravel, so be aware and drive carefully. We may see some traffic restrictions or closures over the following week for paving, but specific dates and times have not been set yet, so check the road conditions line if you’re planning to take that route next week – (209) 372-0200 (press 1 and 1 again). That recorded message contains the most up-to-date information on road conditions inside the park.
A huge shout-out and thank you to the road crews for working so hard to get 120/Big Oak Flat open again!
