Zitat

The Tioga Road and Tioga Pass will be closing at 5pm today, Thursday October 19, 2017, due to the possibility of snow from an approaching weather front. The road will be evaluated Friday morning to determine if it will reopen or remain closed for the season. Currently no overnight parking is allowed along the Tioga Road or the Glacier Point Road.

If the Tioga Road closes Highway 4 (Ebbets Pass) and Highway 108 (Sonora Pass) will most likely close as well.

Please call 209-372-0200 (press 1 then 1) for the most up-to-date road conditions.
Viele Grüße Kat

Construction Delays In Yosemite National Park

Zitat

Visitors to Yosemite National Park should be aware of a number of construction projects that may cause delays in their travels.

Yosemite Valley:
Contractors continue work on Northside Drive between Sentinel Drive and the Yosemite Lodge crossing near Yosemite Falls. Currently they are installing curbs. Flaggers will control traffic, with one lane open at a time.
Contractors also continue road work on Northside Drive from the Yosemite Lodge intersection to just past Camp 4. The Camp 4 parking area will remain closed while contractors set wheel stops.
Campers will continue to have parking available across the street at the Yosemite Falls parking area.
Northside Drive between the Yosemite Falls crossing and Camp 4 will remain limited to one westbound lane. Eastbound traffic will continue to travel through Yosemite Lodge. The contractors hope to complete this work by Thanksgiving if the weather remains favorable.
Masons will begin work on the masonry headwalls on Northside Drive in the west end of Yosemite Valley and El Portal Road between Pohono Bridge and the Big Oak Flat intersection. Work will take place during the day, with one lane closed near each headwall.

South Entrance:
Around the South Entrance, there will be 30-minute delays with single lane traffic control from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Expect heavy truck traffic around the south entrance as crews continue grading and paving the roadways and parking lots. The 30-minute delays will continue through October.

Wawona Tunnel area:
Between the Rostrum and the Wawona Tunnel, motorists can expect up to 15-minute delays from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. as crews continue with culvert-shoulder-ditch repairs.

El Portal construction:
In the El Portal area, crews are working during the day and throughout the nighttime hours, completing storm-slide repairs on the El Portal Road between the western park boundary (Yosemite View Lodge) and the Big Oak Flat Intersection.
The following delays should be anticipated while traveling the El Portal Road between the western park boundary and the Big Oak Flat Intersection:
8 to 10 p.m. – delays limited to 15 minutes
10 p.m. to 6 a.m. – delays limited to 30 minutes
6 a.m. to 8 a.m. – delays limited to 15 minutes
8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. — delays limited to 30 minutes
3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. — delays limited to 15 minutes

Big Oak Flat/Highway 120:
On the Big Oak Flat Road, crews are working from the long tunnel on Big Oak Flat /Highway 120, working westward. Expect short delays.
Please drive slowly in the work zone, watching for workers, equipment and debris on the road. This project is expected to last up to 4 weeks, with operations being done Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., and some Fridays.


As of this date, Tioga Pass and Glacier Point Road remain open.

Restoration of the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias Project

Zitat

The Mariposa Grove restoration project will restore the grove's dynamic ecology and increase its resilience. As a result of this project, the Mariposa Grove is currently closed and is expected to reopen in spring 2018.

Once the project is completed, visitors to the Mariposa Grove will notice:
A consolidated parking area and information station at South Entrance
Many of the roads within the grove converted into hiking trails
Over a half-mile of new accessible trails and boardwalks providing universal access for all visitors to the grove
Flush toilets replacing vault toilets in the grove
Removal from the grove of commercial activities such as the gift shop and tram tours

Zurzeit sind auch der Tioga Pass bzw. die Glacier Road geschlossen - sollen aber wieder öffnen.

Tioga and Glacier Point Roads Closed for the Season in Yosemite National Park

Zitat

The Tioga and Glacier Point Roads in Yosemite National Park are closed for the season, due to hazardous driving conditions. Recent winter storm activity throughout Yosemite National Park has resulted in snow accumulation above 6,000 feet. Glacier Point and Tioga Roads close each fall, when snow and ice create hazardous driving conditions, and remain closed throughout the winter months until weather conditions permit reopening in the spring.
Yosemite National Park is open year-round with snow removal on all other roads within the park. All roads within the park are subject to chain control or temporary closures due to hazardous driving conditions. All motorists are required to carry tire chains, even if their car is equipped with four-wheel drive, while driving in the park during the winter months.
