Reconstruct El Portal Road at the "Narrows" (a 1/4 mile section of road upstream of the Big Oak Flat Road (with connections to Highway 120)/El Portal Road intersection)

Please note the following update on the contractor's construction schedule for the El Portal Road reconstruction at the "narrows":

The following traffic impacts will last through noon May 23, after which the road will be open to 2-way traffic:

Monday through Saturday – 30 minute delays from 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.

Night closures will occur on Sunday through Thursday nights from 10:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. with an opening at 11:00 p.m. for shift workers.

There will be night work after the Memorial Day Holiday from 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM but it will NOT result in road closure. Traffic control will be coordinated with the Valley Loop Road project in that the same pilot vehicle will take motorists through both projects (between El Capitan Crossover and BOF intersection). We expect the delay to be 30 minutes. This will begin on Tuesday 5/27 and may continue 7 days a week.

Call 372-0200.1.1.2 for last minute updates on the status of the opening/closure of this road.
