CULPEPER, Va. (AP) - Starting May 1, it will cost more to visit Shenandoah National Park.

A weekly vehicle pass will increase to $20, up from $15.

The Star Exponent (https://bit.ly/1CE82Cg ) says a second increase to the weekly vehicle pass fee would go in place Jan. 1, 2017, upping it to $25. That still needs approval from the National Park Service.

An annual pass to the park is proposed to increase $10, to $40, in May. In 2017, it would be $50.

The entrance fee for motorcycles is projected to increase from the current $10, to $15, and then $20.

Superintendent Jim Northup said the proposed increases are necessary to sustain the park.
