I contacted South Park Ranger District today to get clarification on the road closure. For this upcoming weekend, the road will be closed from 7AM-7PM on Saturday. The road is open all day Sunday.
The person I spoke to on the phone warned that on Saturday it is possible to get up to the trailhead before 7AM, but once up there, you won‘t be able to get back down until the road reopens at 7PM.
They also said that the sporadic road closures will be going on for about 90 days.
