Environmental Assessment: Lower Wildrose Road Rehabilitation and Repair

The National Park Service (NPS) has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the rehabilitation of 4.8 miles of the Emigrant Canyon Road, commonly referred to as Lower Wildrose Road, in Death Valley National Park, California. The section of road proposed for rehabilitation starts at the junction with Emigrant Canyon Road and Charcoal Kilns Road and ends at the pipe gate at the old National Monument boundary, approximately 1 mile east of the current National Park boundary.

This EA evaluates four alternatives: 1) No Action; 2) Repave Wildrose Road and Widen Existing Road Near Wildrose Station; 3) Repave and Widen Lower Wildrose Road, and Provide Drainage Features and Road Reinforcement at Drainage Crossings; and 4) Repave and Widen Lower Wildrose Road, Provide Drainage Features and Road Reinforcement at Drainage Crossings, and Provide Turn-Out Parking Area for Observing Panamint Daisy Blooming. Alternative 4 is the Park's preferred alternative.
