Glacier Point Road in Yosemite National Park will open to automobile traffic at noon Monday.

The road is currently open to bicyclists.

All visitors are urged to use caution when navigating the roadway as it may be wet due to melting snow, and wildlife may be present on or near the road. Limited visitor services will be available at Glacier Point, and the vault toilets do not have running water.

National Park Service crews are working on clearing Tioga Road, but they have not set an opening date for the roadway.
