Project: Elk Valley Roadway Maintenance Project

Project Status: Planning Completed
Office Location: Medford
Resource Area: Glendale
NEPA #: DOI-BLM-OR-M080-2010-0006-CX  Categorical Exclusion / Decision Record

Summary: The Glendale Resource Area proposes to remove vegetation 10 ft. - 15 ft. (slope distance) from the edge of the road surface down the fillslope, and 10 ft. - 15 ft. (slope distance) from the outer edge of the ditchline up the back slope. The roads identified for road maintenance in the Elk Valley Planning Area were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s and are generally rocked or surfaced. The original road right-of-way clearing widths were a minimum of 60 ft. --100 ft. to allow for roadway construction. The proposed maintenance activities would mechanically cut all vegetation greater than 12 inches in height. Intact roots and re-sprouting vegetation will continue to stabilize slopes and retard erosion. The cutting of trees would include trees up to 24 inches diameter at breast height (DBH). This would consist of mechanically falling all trees within the treatment area and removing merchantable logs. Contact Martin Lew, Glendale Planning and Environmental Coordinator at (541) 471-6504.
