Because of delays caused by the government shutdown, the National Park Service has extended the amount of time that the public can give comments about new infrastructure planned to be placed on Rogers Peak in Death Valley National Park.

The newly-proposed infrastructure includes a 60-foot-tall radar dome, 99-foot-tall AT&T cell tower, and a 99-foot-tall Caltrans communication tower that would replace the smaller one. It would also include larger propane tanks, larger solar panel arrays, and a support building for AT&T.

Through February 25, the public is invited to submit comments to the NPS website.

The National Park Service, the US Air Force, the Bureau of Land Management, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Caltrans, the California Office of Emergency Services, the California Highway Patrol, Inyo County, and Southern California Edison have infrastructure on Rogers Peak. This existing infrastructure consists of a 50-foot Caltrans tower, 62-foot Air Force tower, three support buildings, propane tanks, and solar panels.
