Comprehensive Travel Management
  

Comprehensive travel management is the proactive management of public access, natural resources, and regulatory needs to ensure that all aspects of road and trail system planning are considered. This includes resource management, road and trail design, maintenance, recreation, and non-recreational uses. Travel activities in this context incorporate access needs and take into consideration the effects of all forms of travel, both motorized and non-motorized.

The BLM implements travel plans in a holistic approach, providing clear direction for access and recreation opportunities, while also protecting sensitive natural areas. Aspects of this strategy include signs, maps, maintenance, construction, field presence, monitoring, education, law enforcement and closures.
