Rocky Mountain National Park Fall River Entrance Improvements and Environmental Assessment
The existing structures at the Fall River Entrance Station, built in the 1960s as part of the Mission 66 program, are aging and contributing to employee health and safety concerns, such as poor air quality from exhaust fumes of queuing vehicles and inadequate space for completing shift reports, taking breaks, and coordinating work tasks. The entrance station needs to be updated to address these problems and to handle increasing numbers of visitors as well as even more diverted traffic from Beaver Meadows to reduce traffic congestion and delays in Estes Park on US Highway 36. Through this task order, Otak is completing an integrated process following NPS protocols and requirements that includes predesign and schematic design of alternatives, completion of an environmental assessment and assessment of effect (EA/AEF) and preparation of a full schematic design report.
