The National Park Service announces public hearings on their plans to upgrade the Stehekin Ferry Terminal.

The purpose of this project is to provide universal access at the Stehekin Ferry Landing for all passengers traveling via the commercial ferry system. This will enhance passenger safety and experience by improving accessibility to and from the ferries.

The need for this proposal was first identified in the 1995 General Management Plan for Lake Chelan National Recreation Area. The specific alternatives presented in the Environmental Assessment were developed in response to the Americans with Disability Act Accessibility Guidelines and National Park directives which state that park transportation systems shall be “universally designed” to provide the highest levels of accessibility for mobility impaired persons.
