Entire 2022 season
Glacier Point Road will tentatively be closed for the entire 2022 visitor season.

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
