Once daytime work begins, visitors should expect significantly more delays than have been required during the project to date. However, delays are limited to no more than 30 minutes per lane closure. The park opens at 7 a.m.
If weather remains favorable, the project is on track to be completed by the end of November or early December. Devils Garden Campground is closed and will reopen when the road construction project is complete.
While the nighttime closure of the park remains in effect, visitors must arrive at the park before 6:30 p.m. Those arriving after 6:30 p.m. will not be able to travel past the visitor center, and all vehicles must be out of the park no later than 7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday nights.
