Roadwork to slow traffic on El Portal Road (starting April 4th)
March 29, 2011 05:59PM
Travelers to Yosemite National Park via El Portal Road should expect delays Monday as workers try to stabilize a rockslide area.

The delays will be up to 30 minutes from sunrise to sunset Monday through Friday. A maximum 15-minute delay will take place during commuting hours, 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The delays begin at Dog Rock.

The project includes scaling and bolting to help stabilize an area where slides occurred on Dec. 30 last year. The delays are expected end by the weekend of April 23.

Traffic delays are scheduled to begin next week on the El Portal Road to stabilize a rock slide area near Dog Rock (Approx. 0.25 miles east of the western park entrance). The contractor is scheduled to begin work next Monday, April 4, 2011 with up to 30-minute delays (Except during the commuter hours of 6:30 and 8:30 AM in the mornings and 4:00 to 6:00 PM in the afternoon, when there will be a maximum of 15 minute delays.). They are planning to work from sun-up to sun-down, Monday thru Friday. The contractor will have one lane traffic control with flaggers. This project includes rock scaling and bolting to help stabilize an area that slid during the December 30, 2010 storm and again during last weeks storm event. There may be less delays the first day as they mobilize onsite. The current schedule is to have the work completed in a few weeks and prior to Easter.
