Due to unsafe driving conditions, the road between Mammoth Hot Springs and Norris may remain closed until it is safe to drive on. A road construction area, about five miles between Willow Park and Roaring Mountain, is unpaved, deeply rutted and muddy. Construction crews are working hard to improve the area.

Until the road construction area opens, plan to travel to Old Faithful and Canyon via the West Entrance.

Find updated road status on the park website or by calling (307) 344-2117.
