Sequoia National Park
Construction Alerts: Generals Highway and Wolverton Road
Major reconstruction on part of the Generals Highway in Sequoia National Park started in summer 2017. Traffic delays can be expected between Amphitheater Point and Crystal Cave Road, with the specific construction area being from Deer Ridge to Eleven Range Overlook.
Traffic may be controlled by traffic lights, with uphill traffic passing through first.
Vehicles longer than 22 feet are prohibited on the stretch of road between Hospital Rock and the Giant Forest. Limited parking at the river access across the Generals Highway from Potwisha Campground will be available, as up to 70% of the parking will be occupied by construction materials.
Also, due to repaving, delays can be expected on Wolverton Road this summer.
More information is available on the National Park Service website.
