The road between Longmire and Paradise at Mount Rainier National Park will be open overnight starting Thursday, the park announced.

The road was closed at night during the winter. Some overnight closures could still occur due to poor weather. Park visitors are reminded that vehicles are required to carry tire chains through May 1.
