Request for Scoping Comments on Proposed Road Maintenance and Improvement Projects at Point Reyes National Seashore
The National Park Service in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration proposes to rehabilitate 22 miles of paved park roads and parking areas in Point Reyes National Seashore. The purpose of the proposed action is to restore the structural integrity of these roads to ensure safe driving conditions for visitors traveling in the park, provide efficient parking space to support demand for recreational access in the park, correct road-related drainage problems, and reduce long-term road and parking area maintenance needs and costs. In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the NPS will prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the potential effects of alternatives for repairing and improving park roads and parking areas on the natural, cultural, and human environment.
The public is invited to comment on the proposal during a 30-day public scoping period which closes August 30, 2013. During this scoping period, the public and government agencies are invited to submit written suggestions, comments and concerns to help develop the scope of the EA.
