PAGE, Arizona, Oct. 6, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — The National Park Service is advising the public that a chip seal project starting in October will result in traffic delays in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.

According to a NPS news release, “roads and parking areas in Wahweap’s developed areas will be upgraded with slurry and crack sealing. Work will also be done at the Antelope Point Marina’s main entrance (14-day parking lot). Flaggers will be directing traffic, and drivers are advised to expect delays.”

The release says all services will be available at the Lake Powell Resort and Marina in Wahweap and at the Antelope Point Marina while repairs are underway.

“Every effort is being made to limit inconveniences and minimize delays to visitors and businesses during this process…The park thanks the public for their patience while these improvements in visitor services are completed.”

Start and completion dates for the project have yet to be determined, but the NPS says the work is expected to be finished by the end of October.
