Updating Signage and Wayfinding at Bandelier
Wayfinding signage for Bandelier National Monument was inconsistent in appearance, both inside and outside of the Monument, and not always sited in a visible or appropriate location. Many road signs lacked the NPS Arrowhead to help draw attention to the Monument and there was a lack of Wayfinding signage directing visitors to the Monument any further away than 15 miles.
The Transportation Scholar assisted the Monument in developing a thoughtful, well-developed Wayfinding and sign plan that addresses design, verbiage, and location. Additionally, the Scholar established partnerships with local agencies and finalize the concept for a Bandelier Bike Loop to provide alternative transportation into the Monument, connect to communities, and help to make Los Alamos a family recreation area.
The Transportation Scholar provided Bandelier National Monument the additional insight and fundinging necessary to increase visitor satisfaction and visitation.
