New concrete vault toilets will be installed at several locations around the park in January, 2007. While the installations and replacements are under construction the toilets will be closed to the public starting January 23. Below are the dates and location of the replacements and installations:

Grapevine Canyon - January 23 (installation)
Saddle Cove and Boxcar Cove - January 24 and 25 (replacement)
Northshore Summit Trail parking lot - January 26 (installation)
Stewart's Point and St. Thomas - January 29 and 30 (replacement)

Saddle Cove Road will be closed to the public during construction. At each of the other sites, however, construction should not interfere with visitor access with possibly the exception of Northshore Summit Trail.

Additional signs have been installed by the Contractor at the entrance to the Park on Lake Mead Drive, Lake Mead Boulevard and Lakeshore Drive. These signs give advance notice of the construction work ahead and to expect delays and loose gravel.
