Yosemite Valley, CA– The Wawona Rehabilitation Project at Yosemite National Park has concluded for the year and will be completed next spring.
In May of this year, this extensive project was initiated to repair and repave approximately 25 miles of road within Yosemite National Park. The scope of the project includes work on the Wawona Road from the South Entrance to Yosemite Valley.
Highlights of the project include repaving the road surface, improving drainage along the corridor and replacing curbing. These improvements were completed through a partnership with the Federal Highway Administration and the National Park Service. Work will resume in the spring of 2011.
The work that needs to be completed consists of primarily constructing culvert headwalls. It’s anticipated that this residual work will require two weeks to complete, with 30 minute delays. Exact dates of work and times of delays are forthcoming.
