The public is asked to please avoid the construction area during this time to allow for public and employee safety.

Fighting now against a mandatory sidepath provision in the latest version of the
Gathering signatures on a petition, which we will
soon present to key Senators.
We would greatly appreciate you forwarding the
link to your members.
Here it is, with a little explanatory blub:
The draft of the Senate's
transportation authorization bill, S. 1813 Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st
Century Act, includes language that would introduce a mandatory sidepath law on
roads in our National Parks and other Federal lands. It requires cyclists on
Federal lands to use a path or trail, instead of roads, if the speed limit is
over 30 MPH and a trail exists within 100 yards, regardless of the condition or
utility of the path. The provision sets a terrible precedent. Passing it would
send the wrong message to transportation agencies that these policies are
acceptable. Laws like this have been taken off the books in states over the past
30 years.. This takes us in the wrong direction.
