Tioga Trailheads Project (October 4 - winter closure)

Allison Sierra Inc. (contractor) will begin work on October 4, 2010 at the Yosemite Creek/Ten Lakes Trailhead. At that time they plan to close off the whole parking lot to rehabilitate these areas. Contractors may begin barricading off segments of the Yosemite Creek parking area on Friday, October 1 to allow people the weekend to get their vehicles moved or to alert hikers not to park there beyond Monday. Hikers will be directed to the nearest parking areas which are very close by.

The purpose of this project is to address site maintenance and design needs that improve visitor safety and experience while protecting natural and cultural resources.

There are eight formal trailheads included in this project: Gaylor Lakes at Tioga Pass, Mono Pass, Snow Creek, May Lake/Weston Pond, Porcupine, Yosemite Creek/Ten Lakes, Lukens Lake, and Tamarack Flat/Aspen Valley. This effort does not include Sunrise or Murphy Creek trailheads (Tenaya Lake Area Plan), nor Dog Lake and Cathedral Lakes (Tuolumne River Plan) as these are addressed in other planning efforts.

This year work will occur on the following trailhead areas. Work will continue this fall until they complete all of the following locations or until weather forces an end to the work. Next year's work will include the remaining trailhead segments within this project as listed above.

2010
1.) Yosemite Creek/Ten Lakes(Beginning October 4, 2010)
2.) Gaylor Lakes
3.) Snow Creek
4.) May Lake Turnoff
5.) Tamarack Flat/Aspen Valley

In plain English what does this rehabilitation project mean? Are these trailhead parking areas being eliminated permanently?

I suspect it means new pavement and curbs mostly.
