Partners in Preservation: National Parks
Zion National Park
The Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway is truly an engineering wonder—and just plain fun to drive. Constructed in 1927-30, this improbable road blended built features and the natural landscapes in a way that highlighted Zion’s spectacular beauty. To this day, it’s a highly dramatic and scenic drive for over 3 million park visitors a year.
All that coming and going, however, means that the Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway and Tunnel—which is fundamental to the park’s operations and continued visitation—now needs TLC.
A $191,000 grant from Partners in Preservation: National Parks will support needed preservation work on the Zion-Mt. Carmel Tunnel and Highway including repairs to the sandstone masonry features and interior surfaces of the mile long tunnel.
