    Death Valley route buried in floods closed for another week

    DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK (AP) – A main roadway into Death Valley National Park will remain closed into next week as crews clean up after record-breaking rains damaged the roadway and choked it with mud, rocks and debris.

    Flash flooding in the park last week trapped hundreds of hotel guests and partially buried about 60 cars and trucks in mud. No injuries were reported.

    The California Department of Transportation said about 48 kilometres of State Route 190 were partially or fully buried with debris and about 32 kilometres have been cleared.

    However, the route will remain closed at least through August 17 from Trona Wildrose Road/Panamint Valley Road to State Route 127 in Death Valley Junction, Caltrans said in a statement.
