Devils Garden Scheduled to Reopen June 16th; Fiery Furnace to Close June 18th

Zitat

The Devils Garden area of Arches National Park, including access to area hiking trails, is scheduled to reopen Friday, June 16th, at 7:00 a.m. after having been closed several weeks for needed road work.

Devils Garden Campground remains closed through November 30, 2017.

The Fiery Furnace and Salt Valley Overlook areas are scheduled to close on Sunday, June 18th, at 7:00 p.m. for up to 28 days. During the closure period, these parking and hiking areas will be inaccessible and self-guided permits and ranger-led tours of the Fiery Furnace will not be available.

Work along and around the park entrance road will soon be complete and work crews plan to be out of the area by Friday, June 23rd. At that time, the night closure barricade will move from the junction of the main park road and Highway 191 to near the visitor center. Visitors waiting for the park to open at 7:00 a.m. must park and wait in the visitor parking lot and not on the roadway.

Beginning Friday, June 23rd the park’s visitor center hours will increase to 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and park rangers will present nightly evening programs at the visitor center at 7:00 p.m. Evening program topic information can be obtained in person at the visitor center.

A reminder: Sunday through Thursday, visitors must arrive at the park before 6:30 p.m. Visitors arriving after 6:30 p.m. on those days will not be able to travel past the visitor center. All vehicles must be out of the closure area no later than 7:00 p.m.

The park reopens at 7:00 a.m. Monday through Friday, and is open weekends from 7:00 a.m. Friday until 7:00 p.m. Sunday during this road construction project.

The park will be open with no road construction work on the following holiday weekends:

Independence Day: 7:00 a.m. Monday, July 3rd to 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 5th

Pioneer Day: 7:00 a.m. Friday, July 21st to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 25th

Labor Day: 7:00 a.m. Friday, September 1st to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 5th.

Utah Education Association : 7:00 a.m. Wednesday, October 18th to 7:00 p.m. Sunday, October 22nd

Other areas of Arches National Park, such as The Windows Section, will be closed for up to four weeks once work begins in each of those areas. The park will reopen roads and trails once area construction work is completed. Given the many variables that can impact road projects of this type and scope, work dates are subject to change.

Road work is resurfacing, restoring, and rehabilitating approximately 23 miles of roads and pullouts in Arches National Park along the entrance road (from US Highway 191 to the visitor center), main park road, the campground road, and other spur roads and loops. Road work is scheduled to last through November.

Limited daytime road closures may still occur even with nighttime work. Construction crews will use pilot cars and flaggers to control traffic during the day. When partial daytime road closures are in effect, crews will limit traffic delays to 30 minutes or less per work zone.

While construction crews will make every effort to minimize disruption to visitor daytime travel and activities during this project, visitors should expect frequent delays and closures.

The park will post road construction updates on its official website as they become available. However, construction work schedules are subject to change.

2018 sind höhere Eintrittspreise geplant

Der National Park Service hat die Pläne zur Erhöhung der Eintrittspreise vor- und zur Diskussion gestellt. Viele von uns wird das nicht betreffen, da sich nur die Einzeleintritte bzw. die für ein Motorrad erhöhen sollen. Der Preis für das "Private Vehicle" bleibt gleich. Die Erhöhung um 20 bzw. 33% ist aber schon recht hoch.

Klick
In diesem Sinne
liebe Grüße von Stefan :-)
