Tioga Pass and Yosemite Roads Updates

Yosemite does not have an opening date for Tioga Road at this time. All other roads are now open. Current road status is posted at https://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/conditions.htm

Here is a current report on plans for repairs and expected delays this summer.

Road Work in Yosemite

The National Park Service (NPS) will be making repairs on numerous roadways throughout the park. A Yosemite NPS Project Manager is onsite to complete regular inspections and to ensure that the work complies with our environmental requirements, as well as the goals and mission of the National Park Service. An overview of each project is listed below along with an estimated schedule of delays for each. Email us if you have any questions.

Current Projects

Big Oak Flat and Tioga Road Delays (through summer 2019)

Beginning Monday, June 10, 2019 (conditions permitting), crews will begin pavement preservation work on the Big Oak Flat Road and adjoining secondary roads, such as the Hodgdon Meadow Road and Crane Flat Campground. The work consists of patching potholes, placing a seal coat, and then replacing the centerline rumble strips and re-striping the road. The Big Oak Flat Road work will begin at the northern park boundary and end at the Crane Flat intersection.

Once Tioga Road is open to traffic, the pavement preservation work will continue onto Tioga Road, with similar delays and traffic control. The pavement preservation work will continue through summer 2019.

Summer 2019

Monday – Friday: 7 am – 7 pm; Expect delays up to 15 minutes

No weekend, federal holiday, or night work is scheduled.


Power Line Repairs for Big Oak Flat Tunnel Lighting (June 2019)

Work will continue through the end of June with intermittent 15-minute delays as crews enter and exit the roadway with materials and supplies.
