Abstract

Glacier National Park has seen an overwhelming increase in visitors throughout the past few years. Due to wildfires in Glacier, the team spent the first half of the term in Acadia National Park, where the project was tailored to their similar congestion situation, while still working towards the goals for Glacier. The objectives focused on alleviating congestion by providing park visitors with the information necessary to reduce congestion themselves. In each location, the team determined the current state of congestion management tools and infrastructure, then investigated and compared solutions that best fit each park. The team’s recommended solution combines a newly developed webcam network and an easily accessible traffic and congestion page within the NPS website for respective parks.
