Arches National Park developed a traffic congestion management plan (TCMP) to address vehicle traffic and parking congestion problems that affect visitor access, visitor enjoyment and resource conditions.
The park hosted a public open house on Nov. 16 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Grand Center, located at 182 North 500 West in Moab. The public was invited to stop by the open house any time between those hours to gather information, ask questions and submit written comments regarding the proposed plan. Park staff invite the public to review and comment on this plan. The plan and environmental assessment will be available for public review and comment through Dec. 4 on the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website at: parkplanning.nps.gov/EA_Arches_trafficcongestionmanagementplan.
Hard copies of the plan and environmental assessment are available for review at the Southeast Utah Group Administrative Office at 2282 S. West Resource Blvd. in Moab, the Arches Visitor Center and Grand County Public Library.
Comments unable to be made on the PEPC website can be sent to: National Park Service, Southeast Utah Group, Attn: Planning and Compliance Coordinator, 2282 S. West Resource Blvd., Moab, UT 84532.
