Rehabilitation of Highway 62 West, Crater Lake National Park, Klamath County, Oregon
ALTERNATIVE B: RESURFACING, RESTORATION, AND REHABILITATION
Pacific Crest Trail Parking Lot
The Pacific Crest Trail parking lot entry is located at milepost 72.5. This parking lot is designed for horse and stock access to the trail. The access drive to the parking lot is at an approximate 45-degree angle to the road, making it difficult for vehicles pulling trailers to enter and exit the lot onto and off of the 45-mph highway. Under this alternative, the access drive would be realigned to the west to create a perpendicular “T” intersection with Highway 62 West (figure 5). The parking lot and drive would be resurfaced and graded for drainage with a 4- to 6-inch aggregate cover. The abandoned portion of the access drive would be scarified and allowed to revegetate.
