The National Park Service began a Federal Highway Administration project that will rehabilitate Lakeshore Drive from Hwy 89 at the south entrance of the recreation area to the Wahweap Marina. Initial work on the project began November 30 at the four-way intersection near the Wahweap Ranger Station. Lakeshore drive will be closed starting January 11, 2016 from the Wahweap South Entrance to the four-way intersection. The intersection will remain accessible and other areas of the marina are not expected to be impacted. All traffic into and out of the marina will be detoured through the Wahweap North Entrance on Wahweap Drive until work is completed in May 2016.

This extensive Federal Highway Administration project will replace all road surfaces, culverts, guardrails and signage along the length of Lakeshore Drive. The four-way intersection will be widened and asphalt will be replaced with concrete to accommodate large and heavy houseboats being trailered to and from the Wahweap main launch ramp.  

Every effort is being made to limit inconveniences and minimize delays to visitors and businesses during this process. Work is expected to be complete by early spring.
