A plan to relieve traffic congestion and improve safety at Yellowstone National Park’s historic North Entrance has been approved now. The Finding of No Significant Impact allowing construction to begin on the Gardiner, Montana, North Entrance and associated Park Street infrastructure has been signed now. An Environmental Assessment proposing three alternatives was released for public review and comment in July. Among the highlights of the approved preferred alternative are a new entrance station complex to better facilitate entry into the park, retaining entrance through the historic Roosevelt Arch as an option, expanded parking areas, crosswalks and walkways along Park Street and relocation of the administrative road in front of the Gardiner Transportation Center. Improvements will be completed in phases during the early spring and late fall as funding becomes available.
