Grand Teton National Park Snake River Visitor Facilities
Otak’s team is providing landscape architecture, structural engineering, civil engineering, geomorphology, and hydraulic analysis for these improved water access points in Grand Teton National Park. Current water access facilities on the Snake River are deteriorating and visitor use patterns are impacting the riparian ecosystem in these areas. This is affecting the integrity of a wild and scenic waterway, as well as providing a negative visitor experience. The project team is focused on improving the visitor experience and sustainability of the visitor facilities on the Snake River. In addition, the team is providing a geomorphic and hydraulic assessment to help determine optimal site locations, design concepts, and characterization of fluvial hazards at the proposed sites, to determine the current trajectory of the channel, as well as the potential risks to new investments in infrastructure along the river.
