Mount Rainier National Park is seeking public comments on an environmental assessment for the Stevens Canyon Road rehabilitation project.
The National Park Service, working with the Federal Highways Administration, is proposing to restore and resurface just over 10 miles of Stevens Canyon Road. The work is necessary because of deteriorating road conditions caused by structural deficiencies in the roadway and embankment fill slopes.
The assessment examines two alternatives: no action and the preferred alternative.
The preferred alternative includes:
- Roadway stabilization measures, such as embankment reinforcement and stabilization.
- Reconstruction of the road base, plus removing and recycling asphalt.
- Culvert cleaning,
