Hwy 67 to Close Overnight at N. Rim Park Boundary on Nov 4 at 7pm
Incident: Thompson Prescribed Fire
Highway 67 (the North Rim park entrance road) will close tonight, November 4, at 7pm at the park boundary and will remain closed overnight due to moderate to heavy smoke from the Range and Thompson prescribed fires. It is anticipated the road will re-open in the morning when visibility is likely to improve as smoke is expected to rise when temperatures warm.
