2019 Road Construction Map

Road construction is scheduled to begin on a portion of the Generals Highway within and between Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks on July 8, 2019. This 16-mile Generals Highway Rehabilitation Project will take place over the next 2 years during the construction seasons. In year one, the expected scope consists of drainage improvements and culvert replacements.

Work will begin at the Generals Highway and Highway 180 junction (Wye) in Kings Canyon National Park, progressing south along the Generals Highway through Sequoia National Forest, and concluding at Little Baldy Saddle in the northern area of Sequoia National Park. This project will also include repaving the Wolverton road from the intersection with the Generals Highway to the Wolverton trailhead parking lot as well as pulverizing and repaving the 16 miles of roadway mentioned above.

All National Park and US Forest Service areas along the construction zone will remain open throughout construction. This includes resorts, campgrounds, and organization camps.

This Generals Highway Road Construction Project is funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and is paid for by the Federal Lands Transportation Program. Steve Manning Construction, Inc. bid the project and was awarded the contract on April 19, 2019.

Delay Schedule
Delays will be minimal and only up to 30 minutes for the beginning of the 2019 construction season. Delays up to one hour and night closures can be expected as work progresses, and the public will be notified as those changes take place. As work progresses there may be more than one delay along the 16-mile construction zone, but the combined duration of these delays will not exceed the expected delay times listed in the schedule. If we specify delay times of up to 30 minutes, it may be three separate 10-minute stops, or just one 30-minute stop.
