Vehicle Closures

Vehicle closures established in 2000, as a result of a lawsuit filed against the BLM by the Center for Biodiversity, Sierra Club, and Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, are still in effect because of continuing court actions.  Administrative closures are found north of the wilderness area and south of Mammoth Wash, two closures are in the central portion of the dunes, and a 160-acre closure is south of Interstate 8.  Motorized travel is not permitted inside the closures.  Closures are marked with posts and "No Motorized Vehicles" signs.
