Yellowstone National Park Roads To Close For Snow Clearing
BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Roads in Yellowstone National Park will be closed from the middle of March into April while workers clear snow, officials announced.
Officials announced the park will close in segments as crews start clearing the roads beginning March 15, The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported.
Park officials hope to reopen some roads to vehicles April 17, depending on weather conditions.
Cyclists will be given access to the park before vehicles, with spring biking set to open in early April on three stretches of road including Mammoth Hot Springs to the West Entrance, East Entrance to the east side of Sylvan Pass and the South Entrance to West Thumb.
The park’s website does not give an exact date on which cyclists will be allowed access to the roads.
Administrative staff, snowplows and contractors will be on the roads before the general public, so cyclists will need to ride with caution, park spokseperson Linda Veress said.
