Yellowstone National Park’s East Entrance is scheduled to close for the season at 8 a.m. Monday.

However, in recent days the road into the Park has seen temporary closures due to snowfall.

As a result, it is not clear if Cody area drivers will have much access to the Park before the end-of-year shutdown.

Those interested in last-minute trips to visit the nation’s oldest national park should visit Yellowstone’s website to double check on road status. As of 11 a.m. Wednesday the East Entrance was open.

Most of the other remaining roads still open will close Monday until spring, 2020, with the exception of the North Entrance, which is open year-round, connecting to the Northeast Entrance.

With most of the Park roads closed on a regular bases throughout the fall. It was extraordinary that all of the roads inside the Park remained open 24 hours a day from 2:15 pm on Tuesday October 29,2019 (except for Dun Raven Pass from Tower to Canyon Village which was closed for the season earlier in October) and did not close until 8:00 am Monday November 4, 2019 the scheduled closing date for the interior roads except for administrative travel.
