Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C), the National Park Service (NPS) announces the availability of a Record of Decision (ROD) for the Vehicle Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement for Denali National Park and Preserve. The Vehicle Management Plan addresses management of all motorized vehicles on the restricted section of the Denali Park Road (Mile 15-Mile 90). This plan amends the vehicle management aspect of the park's General Management Plan (GMP). The NPS will propose a modification to the current park-specific regulations in order to implement these amendments. The NPS selected Alternative D (NPS Preferred Alternative), which offers visitors the opportunity to have a high-quality experience using a transportation system that offers predictability, efficiency, and variety. The ROD details the background of the project, the decision made (selected alternative), other alternatives considered, the basis for the decision, the environmentally preferable alternative, measures adopted to minimize environmental harm, and public involvement in the decision making process.
