CRATER LAKE – Rehabilitation work will be done on 7.7 miles of the West Entrance Road, also known as the Highway 62, from Crater Lake National Park’s west boundary to the Mazama intersection in the park.
Superintendent Chuck Lundy said the proposal includes repairing distressed areas, re-establishing drainages, culvert replacement, improving two switchback curves, and restoration of the road surface.
Once completed, he said the project would restore the road while decreasing maintenance work, improving the driving experience for the public and increasing the road’s serviceable life. Construction could begin next spring.
An environmental assessment for the proposed project is available for review on the Web at www.nps.gov.C RLA. A paper copy of the environmental assessment may be obtained by calling Lundy at 594-3002 or by sending an e-mail to CRLA firstname.lastname@example.org, or by writing Lundy at P.O. Box 7, Crater Lake, OR 97604.
