Acadia National Park
This project investigated the problems associated with increased visitation within Acadia National Park. Specifically, the problem of unsatisfactory fee compliance associated with unmonitored entry to the park was addressed. To this end, pressure based axle counters were designed, built, and deployed at all points of access to Park Loop Road. Additionally, fee compliance was quantified in parking lots along Park Loop Road. Ultimately, a relationship was found between unmonitored entry and fee noncompliance, and a comprehensive solution was researched and proposed.
