State Route 190 Over Towne Pass Reopens from Storm Closure
DEATH VALLEY – State Route 190 over Towne Pass is now open to all vehicles following a two-month-long closure. The stretch of highway originally closed in September after heavy rains caused flash floods and debris flows that washed out sections of the pavement. With this opening, travelers will now be able to reach the heart of Death Valley National Park using the western entrance from U.S. 395.
While State Route 190 is fully open, other roads managed by Death Valley National Park remain closed from the late summer storms. For more information on road closures within the park, visit nps.gov/deva.
