Crater Lake National Park Rehabilitate West Rim Drive and East Rim Drive
Newsletter for August 14, 2018 (Acrobat, 251 KB)
Crater Lake National Park initiated a project in 2008 to remediate roadway problems and hazards along the Rim Drive. Concerns included road edge instabilities and undermining which caused reduced road widths, rockfall hazards, and deformation and undermining of masonry guardwalls and retaining walls. In addition, excessive erosion of manmade and natural slopes was occurring due to uncontrolled water runoff from the roadway.
The proposed project includes reconstruction of the entire West Rim Drive and a pavement overlay of East Rim Drive from the North Junction to the Cleetwood Trail Parking Area, as well as additional mitigation of selected sites on the East Rim Drive. The typical proposed roadway will consists of a 22-foot to 24-foot wide paved road with flattened side slopes (foreslope of 4H:1V). There will be localized sections where the side slopes of the road will be steepened (foreslope of 3H:1V) to provide proper drainage.
