On September 9, 2010, pavement preservation work will begin on the South Rim of Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. In order to facilitate the safe and timely completion of this work, some disruption of traffic and parking patterns will occur. All paved roads and parking areas within the park will be improved under this project, including the South Rim Drive, campground, parking lots, and viewpoints.

This Pavement Preservation Project consists of patching, crack sealing, chip sealing, micro surfacing, and striping. Chip sealing requires the use of large pieces of equipment approximately ten feet in width. Delays of up to 15 minutes are possible.

The project is expected to conclude at or near the end of September, weather permitting.

Visitors, community members, and park partners are encouraged to visit the park’s website regularly at blca for the latest updates and changes.

The National Park Service, Federal Highway Administration, contractors, and subcontractors are all committed to minimizing impacts to visitors and community members.
