On Friday 9/22, contractors will selectively clear roadside vegetation on Northside Drive between El Capitan cross-over and Pohono Bridge. One lane will be closed.

Contractors will begin repaving the Sentinel Bridge Parking area and adjacent road on Wednesday 9/27. Sentinel Drive will be restricted to one-lane, one-way southbound traffic during work hours. Traffic that would normally travel northbound on Sentinel Drive will detour eastbound on Southside Drive to Stoneman Bridge and loop back on Northside Drive through Ahwahnee Meadow to the roundabout The shuttle bus will stop on the bridge to let passengers off and pick up passengers. Sentinel Drive will open to two-way traffic during non-work hours .Contractors expect to finish work in this area on 10/6.

Night work will continue under a new schedule on the El Portal Road between the Big Oak Flat intersection and Pohono Bridge. Work will take place from 8pm to 6am, with alternating one-way traffic and a pilot car. Delays will be a maximum of ½ hour.

Work will continue at the four-way intersection at Half Dome Village near Stoneman Bridge. Flaggers will route traffic headed to Half Dome Village in a one-way clockwise loop going eastbound on the Happy Isle Loop Rd then coming back northbound on Curry Village Dr. Contractors hope to pave and finish work in this area the first week in October.

Construction work at the Camp 4 parking area will continue and campers will park across the street at the Yosemite Falls parking area. Northside Drive between the Yosemite Falls crossing and Camp 4 will remain limited to one westbound lane. Eastbound traffic will continue to travel through Yosemite Lodge. The contractors hope to complete this work by Thanksgiving if the weather is good. If not, the parking area and roads will be open for the holidays.
