Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is seeking public comment on a newly released environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed rehabilitation of Lakeshore Drive and Wahweap Boulevard within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. The EA was prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act. "Maintaining public access to the park, including lake access at Wahweap, is a high priority for us," commented Superintendent Todd Brindle. "The proposed road rehabilitation would result in some traffic delays and detours during construction, but public access would remain available."
The EA describes the anticipated effects to park resources and visitor experience associated with the proposed rehabilitation of the primary Wahweap area access roads, road drainage systems, and select roadside pull-outs. These actions are needed to maintain safe vehicular access. The EA describes and evaluates two management alternatives. One alternative is to move forward with completing the proposed road rehabilitation activities, the other is a "no action" alternative whereby the park would not take these actions.
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area welcomes public review and comments during the public comment period from March 27 through April 27, 2015. The Lakeshore Drive / Wahweap Boulevard Road Rehabilitation EA is available in electronic format athttps://parkplanning.nps.gov/glca-wahweaproads. Printed copies will be available for review at the Page Public Library and the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area Headquarters in Page, Arizona.
