The Tioga Road Rehabilitation Environmental Assessment (EA) was released for public review on August 8, 2011, and comments were accepted through September 8, 2011. The park received 12 public comment letters. All comments were reviewed by park staff and were considered in the development of the FONSI and errata sheets. The Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) documents the decision of the National Park Service at Yosemite National Park to rehabilitate Tioga Road, by improving driving conditions on a 41-mile section of Tioga Road extending from Crane Flat (mile post 0) to Blue Slide (mile post 41), just east of Tuolumne Meadows. Thank you to everyone who participated in this planning process.

The Merced River above Nevada Fall and South Fork Merced River above Wawona, numerous small meadows and adjacent riparian habitats occur. Owing their existence to the river and its annual flooding, these habitats help support eight special status animal species: harlequin ducks, black swifts, bald eagles, osprey, willow flycatchers, yellow warbler, western red bat, and Sierra Nevada mountain beaver.
