Crews will continue striping the primary and begin striping the secondary roads this week in Yosemite Valley.  Another crew has mobilized and will begin patching the secondary roads and parking areas this week. Please be prepared for delays when traveling in Yosemite Valley this week as crews will have single lane closures with flaggers and up to 15-minute delays and crews will be working Monday thru Friday, from 8AM to 5PM.  Some of the secondary roads are single lane and very narrow, so it may require closing these roads to complete the patching, please take an alternate route if closure is in effect.  Also, please slow down when coming upon a construction zone and please try to avoid driving on the freshly placed stripe.  So again please slow down, be aware of the construction zones and watch for guidance from the traffic control staff as your driving thru the work zone.   (M.
