Yosemite National Park Continues Work on Pavement Preservation Project
July 6 Update (expect up to 15-minute delays)

El Portal Road
This week, July 5th thru the 8th crews will be working nights crack sealing from 9:00 PM to 7:00 AM. Next week, July 11th and 12th crews will be working during the day microsealing turnouts from 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Please anticipate closure of turnouts along the El Portal Road next Monday and Tuesday, then as soon as the material has cured, the turnouts will be reopened to traffic.

Rancheria and Old El Portal Areas
For this week and next (July 5th thru July 8th, Monday thru Friday), crews will continue with crack sealing and pothole repairs throughout the community from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Next week, July 11th thru 15th crews will be microsealing various roads in Rancheria and Old El Portal from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. For each work area, crews will be installing signs to notify residents when work is occurring on a particular street or parking area, so please move your vehicles when crews are working in your area. Next week is the beginning of the final surface treatment, so some of the narrow roads will require closure for up to 4-hours as the material cures, while others may require detours. Also, unless it is an emergency, please do not drive on the new pavement until you are directed to do so.

Crane Flat Campground
Crews will be chipsealing the main entrance road on Thursday, July 7th.

Foresta Road East (Foresta Community)
Crews will be chipsealing the Foresta Road on July 18th, between the Big Oak Flat Road and the Dumpster Area.

Hodgdon Area
Crews will be completing pothole repairs July 12th and 13th, then chipsealing the various roads July 14th and 15th, so please follow the guidance of the traffic control staff to avoid getting oil on your vehicles.

El Portal Administrative Parking Complex
Crews are planning to complete pothole repairs on July 8th and 11th, then crack sealing on July 10th (Sunday, to minimize impacts to park operations). Please advise your staff they can move the government vehicles to concrete areas, because we are only crack sealing and patching the asphalt surfaces.
