Yosemite, CA — A two-year construction project is underway in Yosemite National Park that will cause up to 60-minute delays for motorists along Tioga Road. This week, crews began working on the multi-phased project, which involves making improvements to the Tuolumne Grove Parking Lot and a 15-mile segment of Highway 120 Tioga Pass. That stretch runs from the Crane Flat intersection to just east of White Wolf. The repairs being done will include culvert drainages, road grading, pavement resurfacing, new signage, and road striping. Park officials say crews will be working in multiple locations along Tioga Road throughout the project, which is slated to end in September of 2015.
Motorists can expect flaggers and/or pilot cars directing traffic through the construction zones. Also, there will be traffic delays.
Here is the Park’s construction schedule, which runs every Sunday night at 11:00 p.m. through Friday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. with these daily delay times:
11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. 60-Minute Delays
6:00 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. 15-Minute Delays
7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 30-Minute Delays
3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. 15-Minute Delays
4:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. 30-Minute Delays
There will be no work on weekends or holidays. In addition, the Tuolumne Grove Parking Lot will be closed for three weeks in October of this year. There will be access to campgrounds and other visitor services along Highway 120 Tioga Pass.
