Summary

Significance: North Entrance Road is significant as an early example of the cooperative agreement between the NPS and the BPR to build quality automotive roads within national parks. Although most road-related structures reflect utilitarian reconstruction of the 1980s, it retains its 1928 rustic log entrance station, original 1931 alignment, and 1939 entrance sign.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: N274
