    WMRNP Public Briefing - December 2015


Route Designation Maps:

It has been brought to our attention that the GIS information used to create the maps for the alternative route designations contained an error on the boundary of the Johnson Valley Exclusive Use Area, part of the 29 Palms Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center expansion.  This has resulted in small errors in the analyses across all alternatives.  Lands under the jurisdiction of the Department of Defense, Department of the Navy, are not available for public use.
