Plowing of Yellowstone National Park’s roads continues with the anticipated date for opening the East Entrance still set for May 3 and the opening of the South Entrance a week later.  A Wyoming Department of Transportation crew had progressed north of Lewis Lake, and was approaching Grant Village where they are to rendezvous with park crews.  Park officials say as of the end of last week, National Park Service Crews were widening the cut over Craig Pass and scraping ice down the south side of the pass toward West Thumb and hope to open that route between West Thumb and Old Faithful by May 10th as well, or shortly thereafter.  Park crews at the East Entrance were finishing preparations like plowing turnouts and preparing restroom facilities along the route.  The two entrances are able to be opened on time due to money for the job being contributed by the tourism interests in Cody and Jackson.  Between the two communities, approximately $170-thousand was raised and contributed to complete the task using Wyoming state plows.
