Long Range Transportation Plan
Federal land management agencies including the National Park Service (NPS) are to develop long range transportation plans per the direction given in the federal legislation known as MAP 21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act P.L. 112-141).
Denali National Park and Preserve (Denali) is the first national park unit in Alaska to develop a park-specific plan. Denali's Long Range Transportation Plan supplements regional and national LRTPs by outlining park-specific transportation goals, objectives, and possible strategies. The goal of the Denali LRTP is to guide transportation planning and decisions during the next 20 years by facilitating the strategic identification and prioritization of transportation infrastructure and systems needed. The draft Denali LRTP will be available in PEPC for public review through October 2, 2017.
The Denali LRTP is a strategy document and does not constitute approval of specific projects. Implementation of potential projects will require future compliance and public comment opportunity via the National Environmental Policy Act.
Public comments provided as part of this public comment period will inform the five-year revisions of the LRTP.
