This week crews will be working intermittently day and night with some crack sealing and patch work on Wawona Road and on the secondary roads/parking areas in Wawona. Also this week on Thursday night-August 2nd, crews will be completing a small test strip of pavement on Wawona Road between Wawona and South Entrance, with up to 15-minute delays from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM. Starting next week, August 6th Monday-8:00 PM to 6:00 AM), the pavement preservation crews will begin the main travel-way paving of the Wawona Road, with 15-minute delays and controlled traffic using flaggers and a pilot car operation.

The paving operation will begin approximately 1/2 mile north of the South Entrance Station. Then each night the paving operation will head north, until they reach Yosemite Valley, which is expected to last thru the end of August 2012. Therefore, at nights there will be many asphalt trucks traveling on Wawona Road and CA State Route 41 between Fresno and Yosemite Valley, so please be patient as you are traveling along this route.
