State Route 190 Reopening Through Death Valley Delayed

INYO COUNTY – Caltrans has delayed the reopening of State Route 190 through Death Valley National Park after determining the road would not be ready for its planned August 17 opening. The road is currently closed from the junction of Trona Wildrose Road near Panamint Springs to Death Valley Junction. Maintenance crews have been clearing the highway since it closed on August 5 following a series of flash floods that led to massive debris flows.

State Route 178, which connects to Death Valley from State Route 127 near Shoshone, is expected to remain closed for several more weeks as park crews continue cleaning up from the August 5 storm. For updates on park roads and facilities within Death Valley, check
