El Portal Road (Highway 140) into Yosemite National Park was scheduled to reopen Tuesday evening after several large boulders fell onto the highway Monday afternoon, closing the route, the National Park Service said.
The road was closed from the park border to the Cascades picnic area. It was scheduled to reopen at 7 p.m. Tuesday. No one was injured in the rockfall.
The Park Service posted photos on Twitter on Tuesday showing crews drilling holes into the truck-size boulders to place explosives so the rocks could be blasted apart for removal.
Visitors should drive with caution through the rockfall area, the Park Service said.
