CEDAR CITY — Construction has begun at the Parowan Gap visitor site improvement project, according to the Bureau of Land Management.
The area will remain open for public use during construction, but visitors are advised to use caution and abide by signs closing or cordoning off specific areas.
Once complete, the project will reduce recreation-caused degradation to cultural and paleontological resources and threatened and endangered species habitat.
The project will also involve locating several new public parking areas away from cultural resources; installing a convenient vehicle turnaround; constructing a visitor trail off-limits to motorized vehicles that has a shade structure and restroom facility; and stabilizing areas to help prevent rockslides.
