Death Valley’s Towne Pass now open

Death Valley National Park, Calif. Matthew Lamar– On November 13, The Death Valley National Park announced that Towne Pass a section of CA-190 is now open to all vehicles. This provides access from the west into Death Valley National Park.  

Caltrans completed the work on this section of the road allowing visitors to once again travel between Panamint Valley and Emigrant via CA-190.  

The Towne Pass section of CA-190 has been closed since September when large amounts of rainfall caused flash floods to wipe away the pavement. 

Many other roads in the park remain closed due to the August and September flooding that Death Valley received.

Visitors can check the most up-to-date road conditions on the park webpage: nps.gov/deva/planyourvisit/conditions.htm.
