2012 Projects - Road Preservation Work
On August 2, crews will be completing a small test strip of pavement on Wawona Road between Wawona and South Entrance, with up to 15-minute delays from 8:00pm to 6:00am.
Starting August 6, the pavement preservation crews will begin the main travel-way paving of the Wawona Road, with 15-minute delays and controlled traffic using flaggers and a pilot car operation. Work will occur at night between 8:00pm - 6:00am. The paving operation will begin approximately 1/2 mile north of the South Entrance Station. Each night the paving operation will head north, until they reach Yosemite Valley, which is expected to last through the end of August 2012. Therefore, at nights there will be many asphalt trucks traveling on Wawona Road and CA State Route 41 between Fresno and Yosemite Valley, so please be patient as you are traveling along this route.
Big Oak Flat Road
Water lines are being replaced from the Crane Flat Gas Station to the Crane Flat Water Tank. Expect delays up to 20 minutes at the Big Oak Flat/Tioga Road intersection through mid-November.
