Road Closed In Yellowstone National Park


A road in Yellowstone National Park's Lamar Valley has been closed since yesterday evening after some 30 feet were partly washed out by high waters. 



Park officials say rushing waters at the confluence between the Lamar River and Soda Butte Creek damaged a section of the eastbound lane of the park's northeast entrance road just west of Soda Butte. 

Visitors can still travel into the northeast entrance of the park over the Beartooth Highway or the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. 

A spokesman said it's unclear how long it may take to reopen the road.
