WRFO Initiates Travel and Transportation RMP Amendment
The WRFO is beginning an Environmental Assessment that would amend the 1997 Resource Management Plan to determine which areas within the 1.5 million-acre field office would be open to cross-country motorized and mechanized use, which would be limited to designated routes, and which would be closed to motorized and mechanized vehicles. Once the amendment is complete in 2017, the field office will begin route-by-route analyses in those areas where travel is limited to designated routes.
