Kolob Terrace Road

Zion National Park is seeking public comment on the National Park Service's proposed plan to rehabilitate sections of the Kolob Terrace Road. An environmental assessment analyzing the impacts of the proposed road work has been completed and is available for public review and comment.

The proposed project would correct deficiencies in road conditions and related safety concerns. Deterioration in the current pavement has led to surface cracks, rutting, buckling, and unraveling of the pavement edge. Years of increased vehicle use, including heavy truck traffic from construction projects on private property, have resulted in an unacceptable and potentially unsafe road surface. The proposed project would begin as soon as funding is available and is projected to take one year to complete.

The public is invited to provide comments on the proposed project analyzed in the environmental assessment until October 19, 2011. Please visit http://parkplanning.nps.gov/zion to review the document and submit comments. Comments can also be mailed to Zion National Park, Kolob Terrace Road Rehabilitation EA, Springdale, UT 84767.
