Summer 2021
Road crews will be conducting brushing, ditching, patching and scaling work along Wawona Road through August with periodic traffic delays. Please remember to drive safely and slowly in this work zone.

Wawona Road Biomass Removal

Through mid-June, 2021
Contractors are removing biomass along Wawona Road between Wawona and the South Entrance. Delays up to 15-minutes may occur. Biomass removal is part of an ongoing project to reduce fuel loading along road corridors and to prepare for prescribed or wildland fires. Material is sent to co-generation facilities where it is converted to electricity.

Through early June, 2021
Expect intermittent delays Monday–Friday from 7 am to 5:30 pm upon entering Yosemite Valley (between Pohono Bridge and Bridalveil Fall) and delays along Northside Drive prior to leaving Yosemite Valley. Contractors are performing utility work along the road and doing repaving work, which will allow for flush toilets at Bridalveil Fall upon project completion. The Bridalveil Fall parking lot and trails are closed to allow for ongoing rehabilitation work.


Future Projects

Glacier Point Road

Glacier Point Road Rehabilitation Project (2022)

Entire 2022 season
Glacier Point Road will tentatively be closed for the entire 2022 visitor season. The project will address multiple severe safety issues on the ten miles of road located between the intersection to the Badger Pass Ski Area and the Glacier Point Parking Area. Some of the road safety issues that will be addressed in this project include:

  • To pulverize and repave ten miles of road between Badger Pass and Glacier Point.
  • To repair the narrow hairpin turns between Washburn Point and Glacier Point to address vehicular safety issues
  • To construct additional parking and new vault toilets near the Sentinel Dome Trailhead
