NPS Seeking Input on Denali’s Long Range Transportation Plan
What will transportation in and around the park look like in 2025? What do you want it to look like? This is a chance for us to help shape the future planning that happens in Denali.
The public is invited to attend a meeting regarding Denali National Park’s Long Range Transportation Plan on Wednesday, September 24 at 6:00 pm in the McKinley Village Community Center. This plan is being developed as part of a nationwide Park Service initiative to plan for multi-modal transportation on federal lands during the next 10-20 years.
Visitors to Denali National Park often use multiple types of transportation both in getting to the park and as part of their visit. Long Range Transportation Planning seeks to look at transportation challenges and accompanying solutions. Denali’s visitors come on planes, trains and automobiles, as well as on foot, aircraft, off-road vehicle, dogsled, you name it! From the use of the complex shuttle systems, to subsistence access, to travel along Denali’s remote waterways, there is much to consider about transportation in Denali. The input of area residents, commercial operators, and visitors will prove invaluable in crafting an inclusive and effective plan that gives consideration to mobility, resource protection, user experience, climate change, and much more.
Please attend this scoping meeting to learn about the plan’s development and to offer your input.
