National Park Service, Interior.


Notice of extension of public comment period.


The National Park Service, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, has prepared a combined Stehekin River Corridor Implementation Plan, Lake Chelan National Recreation Area Land Protection Plan, and Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Plan/DEIS). The Plan/DEIS evaluates four alternatives for sustainable management of NPS facilities (e.g. roads, maintenance yard, trails, bridges) in response to flooding and erosion issues on the lower Stehekin River between High Bridge and Lake Chelan, outside of the Stephen Mather Wilderness. The original Notice of Availability (published in the Federal Register on September 7, 2010) announced a 90-day public comment period. In deference to requests from the public and interested organizations, the comment period has been extended for an additional thirty days.
