The Pass is Open as of Thursday, May 30, 2019 – Thank You CalTrans!

Bear Valley, CA…The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has removed the winter snow, cleared the debris, made necessary repairs and opened State Route 4 (SR4)/Ebbetts Pass National Scenic Byway at noon on Thursday, May 30, 2019.

Caltrans manages three trans-Sierra passes in the Central Sierra that are closed during winter and generally open in spring: Ebbetts Pass/SR-4 in Alpine County, Sonora Pass/SR-108 (Tuolumne County) and Monitor Pass/SR-89 (Alpine County). State Route 120/Tioga Pass is a 12-mile section from US Highway 395 to the Yosemite National Park east entrance gate.

Caltrans crews have cleared the snow, removed loose rocks, and completed road repairs from the record-breaking snowfall this past winter.

Tioga Road and the east entrance gate to Yosemite National Park remains closed. Park road crews continue to clear snow and make road repairs. To check the status of Tioga Road, visit
