An investment of $30,000 by the state Fire Marshal’s Office will help fund an emergency egress road from Wallowa Lake State Park, in the foreground, to the West Moraine, at left.

WALLOWA LAKE — Funding is starting to come together for an emergency egress road at Wallowa Lake State Park, with a one-time investment of $30,000 from the Oregon State Fire Marshal’s office, according to a press release.

Kirk Barham, eastern district manager for the Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation, said the $30,000 has yet to come through, but he believes it’s going to help fund an emergency egress road along the west side of the lake, where only a footpath leads from the state park toward private homes on the West Moraine.
