June 2, 2021 Public Meeting: Project Kick-off and Existing Conditions

In an evening virtual meeting, the National Park Service (NPS) presented a kick-off meeting for the Vicksburg National Military Park Park-wide Road System Study including a presentation on existing conditions and a timeline/next steps for the project. Following the presentation, attendees were invited to provide comments on the project, the park roads, and park.

The completed study will provide recommendations for options to manage the Park's roadway structures more sustainably, explore new alignments for roadways, and assess the reduction and addition of elements.

The presentation can be downloaded below and is open for comment until July 2, 2021. The National Park Service and study team will rely on input from the public, Park users, history enthusiasts, and others as roadway system options are developed. The information you provide today will serve as the foundation for potential roadway options as the study progresses. This is an opportunity to share comments on you what you value with the park. The National Park Service looks forward to hearing comments concerning considerations for the park road system.
