Norris to Canyon Road Closed Due To Increased Fire Activity

Update: road is now open

------------------------------------------------------------------

The Norris to Canyon section of roadway in Yellowstone National Park is temporarily closed due to increased activity on the Cygnet Fire. This closure is necessary due to low visibility from smoke and to allow firefighters to work safely along the roadway.

With this road closure in effect, there are still alternate routes to any facility or entrance in the park and visitors should be able to get to their destination with little inconvenience.

The Cygnet Fire is a lightning-caused fire 5 miles southwest of Canyon Village and was approximately 1700 acres early Thursday afternoon. The fire was discovered on August 10.

The road will reopen as soon as possible.

Updated road information can be obtained 24 hours a day by calling 307-344-2117.
