Construction for improving day-use parking for visitors at Yosemite National Park will begin following Labor Day weekend.
Yosemite National Park, CA – A major parking rehab shortly set to start in the park will not affect Yosemite visitors over the holiday weekend — with the exception of those who plan to wake up there Tuesday.
According to Yosemite National Park spokesperson Jamie Richards, as part of ongoing plans to improve parking and traffic circulation in and out of the park, the primary day-use Yosemite Village Parking Area will close Tuesday morning and remain so, probably until late November or early December.
During this time, as weather allows, she says that a construction crew will be expediently working on revising the entrance and exit to make it safer for vehicles and pedestrians as well as to create “a much smoother sense of arrival” in the park. She readily admits that currently, it is more confusing than not for visitors to figure out where to park and how to get around in that area.There is no new news on the lawsuit by the former concessionaire, Delaware North.
