Denali Park road running up against usage limits

Denali National Park officials began the scoping process last night for a new plan for how the park’s one road ought to be used. Currently, the road has a limit of ten and a half thousand trips a year.  But visitor demand is projected to hit that limit within a couple of years.  Already park managers sometimes have to curtail their own staff’s movements to stay within the limit.  The process will lead to new contract terms for transportation providers to bid on.
