The National Park Service (NPS) is proposing the rehabilitation of overlooks along Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia.

Currently, many of the historic overlooks located along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park are in poor condition. Stone masonry retaining walls, guardwalls and parking areas are deteriorating, which has created public safety concerns and diminished overall visitor enjoyment. In addition, the overall historic characteristics of the overlooks have been diminished by some inappropriate later additions to the overlooks (e.g., rolled asphalt curbs and paved sidewalks).
