Beginning on Monday, Oct. 15, Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone National Park will be closed to all traffic for the rest of 2018.
That means tourists will not be able to drive from the Yellowstone Lake area to Cody, Wyoming. Drivers coming from Cody and through the East Entrance will be able to drive only as far as Yellowstone Lake's Sedge Bay, weather permitting.
That means to enter the rest of the park, drivers traveling from the Cody area will want to use the Northeast Entrance via Cooke City during the closure.
On Nov. 5 all roads in the park will close at 8 a.m. except the road between Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyoming, and Cooke City, which stays open all winter.

Updated road status can also be found on the park website, at visitor centers, and by calling 307-344-2117. To receive Yellowstone road alerts on your mobile phone, text "82190" to 888-777 (an automatic text reply will confirm receipt and provide instructions).
