Document Description
The project is located on SR 140 in Mariposa County, from 8 miles east of Briceburg, a small community anchored by a Bureau of Land Management Visitor Center, to 7.6 miles west of El Portal (post mile 42.0 and 42.7) where the Ferguson rockslide covered the highway with 798,000 tons of rock and debris in April 2006. Caltrans proposes to restore full highway access between Mariposa and Yosemite via SR 140 in Mariposa County, CA, by repairing or permanently bypassing the portion of SR 140 that was blocked and damaged by the Ferguson rockslide.
