Arches National Park has extended the public review period for the draft Transportation Implementation Plan and Environmental Assessment to November 1, 2006 due to intermittent website problems.

The alternatives portion of this plan describes a range of actions such as improvements to parking areas and roadside pulloffs, traffic calming treatments, concession-operated motorized interpretive tours, and intelligent transportation system applications. The NPS also proposes to continue to pursue partnerships with local and regional interests, and employ various visitation and congestion management strategies. These actions are needed to manage the quality of visitor experiences at many popular attractions in the park. The accompanying Environmental Assessment sections evaluate the alternatives in terms of potential resource and socioeconomic impacts.

ArchesNational Park welcomes public review and comments during the public comment period from September 18 through November 1, 2006. 

Printed copies will be available for review at the following public locations: Grand CountyPublic Library (Moab, UT), Moab Information Center, Arches National Park Visitor Center, NPS Southeast Utah Group Headquarters (Moab, UT).

The document is also available in electronic format on the internet at http://parkplanning.nps.gov or on compact disk by request from Project Leader Pat Sacks at (303) 969-2431.

Feeding wildlife can be very detrimental to their health. It can destroy their natural ability to find food and create a dependency on humans. Animals that develop such a dependency often become aggressive toward humans and must be relocated or even killed.
