The new Road2Yosemite140 Facebook page, https://bit.ly/3xDr1yf, provides updates, photos, videos and much more.
The Ferguson Rock Shed Project is intended to restore full access to Route 140 for vehicular traffic and bicyclists.
Route 140 is a key access point to Yosemite National Park and serves the communities of Mariposa and El Portal, who have been severely restricted since a rockslide closed the roadway.
Phase 1 of the project, scaling the slope and removing the rocks (talus), has begun and will continue into winter 2021/spring 2022.
Phase 2, construction of the 675-foot protective shed, the first in the world hydraulically launched along a curve, is scheduled to start in summer 2022.
Don’t miss history in the making!
This work is scheduled to begin as listed, but is subject to change due to traffic incidents, weather, availability of equipment, and/or materials and construction related issues.
For the safety of workers and other motorists, please Be Work Zone Alert.
