Bonnie Clare Road Reconstruction Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI)

The National Park Service has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the reconstruction and resurfacing of a 7.7-mile segment of Bonnie Clare Road through Grapevine Canyon, from the Death Valley National Park boundary at the California/Nevada state line to the junction of Ubehebe Crater Road and approximately 100 feet past the Grapevine Ranger Station. This project also includes formalizing and paving the turnout at the park boundary entrance sign near the California/Nevada state line, resurfacing and making accessibility improvements to the parking lot and sidewalks at Grapevine Ranger Station, and resurfacing the 1.9-mile Mesquite Spring Campground Road.

The selected action for this planning process is alternative B as described in the environmental assessment, with minor modifications as detailed in the FONSI. These project revisions result from consultations completed with the California State Historic Preservation Office, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Federal Highway Administration.

The FONSI includes two appendices. Appendix A is a Determination of No Impairment for the selected action, and Appendix B is a Memorandum of Agreement between the National Park Service and the State Historic Preservation Officer, with the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe's concurrence.

For questions about this planning process, please contact the park's Environmental Protection Specialist at 760-786-3227.
