New Yellowstone N.P. Entrance Proposed
Yellowstone National Park officials have proposed adding a second entrance near the Roosevelt Arch to help abate traffic congestion at the popular landmark.
The historic stone archway at the parks northern entrance near Gardiner is a popular place for visitors to stop for photos.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports the proposal released Thursday calls for a new access road that will let visitors avoid the line of vehicles under the arch.
The plan also would expand parking and new pedestrian walkways in downtown Gardiner just outside of the entrance.
The National Park Service is taking public comment on the plan until Aug. 13.
