In cooperation with the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, Black Mesa State Park recently received a new asphalt overlay for the main roadway through the park. The extended snow coverage on the park roads during the winter of 2006-2007 made the repairs especially necessary. Funds for the project were approved by the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Commission as a capitol improvement project for the park. J & S Sand Company of Liberal Kansas was the selected contractor and completed the work on July 11th. To enhance pedestrian safety in the park, two automobile speed control devices were installed on the roadway, one near the playground area and one alongside the main campground sites.
