The following is a list of the various stages that occur during a planning process. Though there are added public involvement opportunities such as meetings and workshops throughout, this outlines the major steps. They include:
Initial public outreach
"Yosemite is one of the great gestures of the Earth. It isn't that it is merely big - it is also beautiful, with a beauty that is as solid and apparent as the granite rock in which it is carved...." Ansel Adams, 1937
This project includes 5.1 miles of the Glacier Point Road between, and includes improvements to, the Chinquapin intersection and the Badger Pass Ski Area parking lot. The existing roadway was completed in 1936, replacing the original wagon road built in 1882. This area attracts high volumes of traffic year-round because it provides access to Bridalveil Creek Campground, Glacier Point, the Badger Pass Ski Area, and numerous trailheads.
