Delays expected in Yosemite due to road construction
Yosemite National Park visitors may face 30 to 60 minute delays beginning in May, due to road construction planned for Wawona Road.
The project is planned to improve 24 miles of Wawona Road, from the south entrance of Yosemite to the junction at Bridalveil Straight in Yosemite Valley.
Visitors entering Yosemite via Hwy 41/Wawona Road may experience delays of up to 30 minutes from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. weekdays, and possible 60-minute delays from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday through Friday.
The project to resurface and restripe the roadway, improve grading and drainage and add new signage is expected to be completed by November.
