The construction schedule remains Monday - Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Expect up to 30-minute delays. Flaggers and a pilot car will manage traffic, allowing alternating two-way traffic.
Overnight parking restriction ending; parking still limited
The overnight parking restrictions at the Bishop Pass Trail are anticipated to end July 24th. Parking will be restored after the work is complete (July 25th).
However, hikers entering or exiting the Bishop Pass Trail should still understand that parking is extremely limited, plan their trips in accordance with the reconstruction schedule and consider being picked up or dropped off at the trailhead or using shuttles to/from trailheads.
Overnight parking is still available at the dirt parking lot north of Tyee Lakes Trailhead (3 miles from trailhead), but hikers should plan for bear lockers only at the Bishop Pass Trailhead.
There is no parking permitted along roadside shoulders during the construction project.
