Fish and Game will be seal coating and re-striping the asphalt parking lots at these sites. These are routine maintenance activities that are necessary to extend the life of the asphalt parking lots. The work will be performed by a private contractor.  We recognize that this is a busy time of year at these sites and thank site users in advance for their patience while we complete this work.
