Ferguson Slide Permanent Restoration Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR

Document Description
NOTE: Review Per Lead The California Department of Transportation proposes to restore full highway access between Mariposa and El Portal via State Route 140 in Mariposa County, California by repairing or permanently bypassing the portion of State Route 140 that was blocked and damaged by the 2006 Ferguson rockslide. Currently, motorists use a temporary, one-lane bypass route to avoid the portion of State Route 140 that was closed by the Furguson rockslide. This bypass route imposes substantial restrictions on the size and type of vehicles that can travel along State Route 140. Restoration of State Route 140 would eliminate the detour and provide full access to all traffic on State Route 140 between the town of Mariposa and Yosemite National Park.
