Snowfall has closed the Yellowstone National Park route from Tower Fall to Canyon Junction over Dunraven Pass, the Park Service announced on Friday. The pass was scheduled to close to the public on Oct. 15.

The road was temporarily closed Tuesday evening, Oct. 8, because of accumulating snow, wind, and ice that made for unsafe driving conditions.
