The National Park Service, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, is planning to reconstruct the segment of road from Norris Junction north to Golden Gate (15.4 miles) within the northwest portion of Yellowstone National Park. The first step in the planning process is to solicit public input during what is known as the scoping period. This is the time when any interested individual, organization or agency can provide thoughtful, relevant information or suggestions for consideration by park managers before alternatives are developed and analyzed and an Environmental Assessment (EA) is prepared and made available for public review and comment.
A brochure with information on some of the alternatives which might be considered in the EA and an electronic form to submit comments can be found by clicking on "Open for Public Comment" on this webpage. Public comments must be recieved or postmarked by midnight August 19, 2009.
