Visitors to Antelope Island State Park will pay an extra fee to use the causeway leading to the park when it opens July 1.

The Davis County Commission has set a fee of $2 per carload, or $1 for hikers and bicyclists, to cross the causeway. The fees are on top of the standard $3 per carload or $1 per biker the state will charge to get into the park.The extra fee will be collected by the state and paid back to the county on a quarterly basis, going into a fund to maintain the causeway.

Davis County owns the seven-mile causeway west of Syracuse, which was constructed with state money under the supervision of the county's public works department.

Commercial tour buses will pay a $5 causeway fee, but educational groups with prior arrangements will not be charged. The county will also honor the state parks senior citizen passes.
