MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — Roads in Yellowstone National Park are about to start closing for spring plowing.

Park officials say the road from Mammoth Hot Springs to Norris will be the first to close on Sunday followed by the roads from Norris to Madison and Norris to Canyon Village on Tuesday. Other park roads will follow and all roads will be closed by the end of the day March 15.

The road from the park's north entrance at Gardiner, Montana through Mammoth Hot Springs to Cooke City, Montana will remain open.

If the weather cooperates, the closed roads are expected to reopen on April 15.
