Hetch Hetchy Road opens Friday

Jill Ballinger/GAZETTE EDITOR

The Hetch Hetchy Road is scheduled to open Friday, April 5.  Construction project work will continue adjacent to O'Shaughnessy Dam, which will result in the parking area next to the dam to be closed Friday and Saturday and potentially into the beginning of the week of April 8.

 Limited parking will be available at the backpacker's parking area.  Pedestrians will have access to and across the dam. 

Tuolumne Meadows rangers report that there is a considerable amount of bare pavement on the Tioga Road, from the gate in the Lee Vining Canyon to Tioga Pass and in the area of Gin Flat, just east of Crane Flat. There are already some patches of bare pavement from Tioga Pass to Tuolumne Meadows, as well.
