Yosemite National Park announces the release of the Bridalveil Fall Rehabilitation Environmental Assessment (Bridalveil Fall EA). The public comment period for the Bridalveil Fall Rehabilitation Environmental Assessment is currently open and will be open until March 14, 2018. Yosemite National Park initiated public scoping and tribal and agency consultation for this project in spring 2017.
The Bridalveil Fall Rehabilitation Environmental Assessment describes and analyzes two action alternatives to improve visitor services and facilities located near Bridalveil Fall. The preferred alternative (Alternative 3) would:
Replace vault toilets with flush toilets at the Bridalveil Fall Parking Area
Construct a new accessible loop trail from the BridalveilFall Parking Area to a viewing platform.
Enhance the Bridalveil Fall Parking Area within its existing footprint to improve safety
and reduce traffic congestion.
Expand the existing viewing platform for Bridalveil Fall
Improve safety and traffic congestion along Bridalveil Straight along Southside Drive.
On Thursday, March 1, 2018, Yosemite National Park will host a public webinar about the Bridalveil Fall Rehabilitation project from 9:30 am to 10:30 am. To view the webinar, visit: https://yose.webex.com.
