The National Park Service (NPS) in partnership with the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) are proposing to reroute approximately 0.25 miles of the Stehekin Valley Road at milepost (MP) 5.5 in Lake Chelan National Recreation Area.

The purpose of this action is to sustainably maintain safe and reliable vehicle access on the Stehekin Valley Road by addressing the threat of river bank erosion below the road near MP 5.5. Maintaining this access is essential for local transportation needs and ensuring the health and safety of the local populace, NPS employees, and visitors. This proposal is aligned with the purpose of the 2013 Stehekin River Corridor Implementation Plan and the goals and direction provided in the 1995 Lake Chelan National Recreation Area General Management Plan.
