The purpose of listing roads on the Death Valley Morning Report is to list roads that are closed due to weather conditions or are in a deteriorated condition from their standard condition. Otherwise park roads are OPEN as stated on the report. In recent months the park has left some roads on the report longer than normal after the road had re-opened or returned to its standard road condition. Several roads have recently been removed from the list as others will be when it is determined that they have also returned to their standard condition. In late September watch for a new and improved format for the Morning Report. Also watch for a comprehensive list of "standard road conditions" on the official death valley web page (nps.gov/deva). This list will contain standard conditions for nearly a hundred paved, maintained dirt, and unmaintained 4x4 roads covering nearly a thousand miles.
