Stevens Canyon Road Rehabilitation Schedule

Rehabilitation of Stevens Canyon Road began on July 5, 2022

Stevens Canyon Road is the only east-west route through the park and connects the popular Paradise area with State Route (SR) 123 near the park’s eastern boundary. During the summer and early fall 2022 construction period, contractors will be repairing the section of the road between Stevens Creek and Box Canyon. Work will include replacement of guard walls, repair of avalanche chutes, and repair of the road surface.  

September 22, 2022-October 3, 2022: Stevens Canyon Road will be closed to through traffic Monday 6 am through Thursday at 8 pm. The road will be open to through traffic all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This is the current schedule, which is reflected on the maps handed out at the entrance stations, and on our website (https://go.nps.gov/StevensCanyonRoadRehabilitationProject)
 
October 3, 2022-October 16, 2022: Stevens Canyon Road will be closed to through traffic Monday 6 am through FRIDAY at 8 pm. The road will be open to through traffic all day Saturday and Sunday.
 
On October 17, Stevens Canyon Road will close for the season. Contractors will still be working on the road during this time, so no access (vehicle, bicycle, or foot traffic) will be allowed.

 

The project is being funded by the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA). 

The Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA), passed in 2020, improves infrastructure and expands recreation opportunities in national parks and other public lands. This project is being managed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The Stevens Canyon Rehabilitation Project will be a multi year effort, expected to last until mid-summer 2024.
