Park-Wide Sign Plan Installation

The park-wide sign replacement plan will begin this spring with more than 1,000 park signs being removed and replaced with new signage that reflects National Park Service sign standards. Route 6 signs are being installed during the month of April. The next portion of the installation will take place in May and June throughout the park. Work will pause during the busy summer season and will pick back up in September and October.
