Construction on the Nisqually to Paradise Road at Mount Rainier National Park is on on hold until Tuesday to reduce delays for visitors.
Visitors to the part will find 12 sections of the road without pavement below Longmire.
According to a statement released Friday by the park, “Visitors are advised to stay in their designated lane. Changing lanes to avoid a rough surface through these areas is nearly impossible, and attempting to do so creates a dangerous situation, especially
around blind curves with the potential for unseen oncoming traffic.”
The Washington National Park Fund’s annual Spring Dinner and Auction raised more than $180,000 for Washington three largest national parks, the organization announced May 22.
Mount Rainier, Olympic and North Cascades national parks rangers and scientist were joined by 250 people. A portion of the evening dedicated to trail restoration generated more than $53,000.
A statement released by WNPF stated the fundraising “far exceeded its goal.”
