MRP Transportation Workshop
The purpose of this workshop is to gain a common understanding of transportation issues and constraints and how these may affect river values. The Merced River Plan will identify opportunities for different types of transportation options that provide visitor access while offering a quality experience and protecting river values. The workshop will provide the public with the opportunity to participate in discussions about the various transportation and related access options that may be considered in the plan and how these may affect river values and their experiences.
The workshop will showcase research, modeling and other information related to transportation considerations that will inform the development of the Merced River Plan.

Did You Know?
At the east end of El Portal, just west of Yosemite National Park’s boundary, changing river gradients, glacial history, and powerful floods have created a boulder bar with boulders much larger than typically found in such deposits. This is no ordinary boulder bar, however, for it contains massive boulders over a meter in diameter and weighing many tons.
