The Twentynine Palms entrance to Joshua Tree National Park has re-opened after temporary repairs were completed to the road. The road from the Twentynine Palms entrance to the turn-off to Cottonwood entrance was closed to all traffic following a storm September 7 that washed out a section of roadway. The damaged road has been repaired, but it will not be repaved until next year. Signs and barricades are up to warn motorists that the damaged road is dirt. Work continues in the Cottonwood Oasis area, and Cottonwood Springs Trail, Mastodon Trail, and Lost Palms Oasis remain closed to visitors.
