Two key roads in Yosemite to shut down

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Crews are preparing to close a couple of popular roads in Yosemite National Park as a precaution due to the incoming winter weather.

Starting Tuesday night at 6pm, Tioga Pass and Glacier Point Roads will be shut down to all traffic.

Roads will re-open once weather and road conditions clear up. Park officials say a series of winter storms are expected to pass through the Yosemite Area this week -- through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

If you are planning to travel there, you are asked to use Highway 120 West, Highway 140, and Highway 41, which are open year-round.
