Tonight is the first of two meetings Mount Rainier National Park officials are holding as they develop an Environmental Assessment for possible repairs of the Carbon River Road.
Today’s meeting is at 7 p.m. at the Enumclaw Public Library, 1700 First St., Enumclaw.
Tuesday’s meeting will be at 7 p.m. at Tacoma Mountaineers Clubhouse, 2302 N. 30th St., Tacoma.
Park staffers will discuss proposed alternatives for dealing the road, which has been closed to vehicles since more than two miles of road was damaged in November 2006 by flooding.
Access to Ipsut Creek Campground and trails in the northwest corner of the park is by foot and bicycle only.
The assessment will analyze several alternatives for the road, including closure of all or part of the road.
