Glacier Point Road Rehabilitation Project to Begin in Yosemite National Park
Date: June 17, 2009

Yosemite National Park will be reconstructing part of the Glacier Point Road beginning this Monday, June 22, 2009. Work will consist of the rehabilitation, restoration, and resurfacing of the road, including repaving and drainage improvements to include 5.1 miles of the road from the Chinquapin intersection to Badger Pass Ski area. Additionally, there will be work on the Wawona Road (Hwy. 41) near the Chinquapin intersection.

This work will result in thirty-minute delays for park visitors. The traffic delays will occur weekdays (Monday through Friday) with one lane traffic control. Work will occur during daylight hours and night work will begin on August 1. Traffic will be stopped by flaggers and vehicles will be released every thirty minutes. Weekend construction will allow for two lanes of unrestricted travel for park visitors.

Restroom facilities at the Chinquapin intersection will be closed. Visitors are asked to use restrooms in Wawona, Yosemite Valley, and Glacier Point.

The project will have a winter shutdown date as to not affect the operation of the Badger Pass Ski Resort. The project is slated to be completed on May 27, 2010.
That's funny because we drove that road on June 3 and I don't remember it being in bad condition or any potholes or "rough spots" on the road. Too bad about the closing of that restroom at Chinquapin because that is the best-located restroom I've ever seen at any park. You always arrive at it just as you are seriously consdiering pulling over to water a tree.
