Arches National Park crowd-relief study will look at shuttles, new entrances, entry by reservation

Moab • Arches National Park is launching a new study to examine in detail the overcrowding problem that is dampening the experience for many visitors.

“Nobody wants to be excited to come to the park and then be faced with that line,” says Kate Cannon, Arches superintendent.

During an open house on Tuesday, Cannon told The Salt Lake Tribune the park service is trying to “flesh out” concepts for traffic and transportation solutions.

The open house in Moab’s Grand Center outlined four transportation studies for 2019 and 2020, including a revived 2012 study for shuttle service previously scrapped by Cannon.
