JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK, Twentynine Palms, California – A major roads improvement project is slated to begin April 30 in the park. Work will include crack sealing, micro-surfacing, chip sealing, pavement repairs as well as, new striping and road markings. Construction may occasionally affect parking in campgrounds and turnouts. Minor traffic delays will also be a factor during the months of May and June. Work will take place Monday – Friday (except holidays), between the hours of 6 am and 7pm.

Delays may be up to 30 minutes in some areas and will also affect shuttle service. Park officials ask visitors to please obey to all signs and notices and be especially cautious around flaggers while traveling through the park.

These improvements will extend the life of park roads and parking areas as well as improve visitor safety at Joshua Tree and greatly enhance the park driving experience. For any questions please contact Kirk Diamond Chief of Facility Maintenance at 760-367-5680.
