The NPS, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, is proposing to widen lanes, pave the shoulder and straighten curves along two sections of the roadway. The current lanes on the Cottonwood Cove access road are inadequate to accommodate the large vehicles and trailers that use the road. If approved, the project will establish a safe, effective and accessible driving route from the entrance station to the marina and boat launch area for visitors and NPS employees. The park is accepting public comments through November 1, 2021.
Public participation is an important element of the planning process, and the park welcomes your ideas, concerns, issues, suggestions, and consideration. Please share comments via one of the following methods:
Preferred Method: Online through the Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website at: https://parkplanning.nps.gov/LAKE
