Bryce Canyon National Park Superintendent Eddie Lopez has announced that the Environmental Assessments (EA's) for the park’s Tropic Canyon Highway Stabilization Project and Mossy Cave Trail Rehabilitation and Resource Protection project have been completed and are available for public review and comment.
Tropic Canyon Highway Stabilization Project
The Tropic Canyon EA evaluates the beneficial and/or adverse impacts that highway stabilization activities may have on the natural and cultural resources located in the area of the proposed project.
