MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Wyo – Yellowstone National Park has officially reopened its north entrance in Gardiner, Montana, and the road between the north entrance and Mammoth Hot Springs, Old Gardiner Road, to regular visitor traffic. Today and October 31, the park is waiving all entrance fees.
The road reopened after contractors completed stripping on October 29.
Yellowstone reminds the public of everyone’s responsibility to use the road with caution to avoid accidents.
Steep grades and sharp turns exist, so motorists should drive slowly and with caution. Speed limits on park roads vary between 15 and 25 mph. There are no length or weight restrictions on the road, although oversized vehicles and vehicles with trailers must exercise caution around bends to maintain lanes.
Minor road construction works will continue with one-way traffic control and short delays at some points on the road.
