Yosemite vista project begins

October 04, 2005|Hugo Martin

CONSTRUCTION has begun on a $1.5-million face-lift for Olmsted Point, the 8,400-foot-high vista along Tioga Road in Yosemite National Park.

The overlook offers park visitors a bird's-eye view of Half Dome, Tenaya Lake and Mt. Conness.

The project, funded by the nonprofit Yosemite Fund, will replace erosion damage to the parking lot and surrounding trails. It will add a retaining wall, educational exhibits and access for the disabled.

Construction began in September and is scheduled to be completed early next year. The vista point remains open during work.
