BLM Improving Hudson Atlantic Road


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is upgrading the Hudson-Atlantic City Road, located within the Lander Field Office area. Work will begin on Monday, October 5 and is expected to be completed by the end of November.

Travelers may expect delays of 15 minutes or less while 16 miles of the road are reshaped and graveled. The Hudson-Atlantic City Road is heavily used by recreationists and ranchers.

"The Hudson-Atlantic City Road has historically been difficult to maintain," said BLM Civil Engineer Monica Goepferd. "The road work will make maintenance much easier in the future. In addition, hunters, hikers, and other recreationists will find it much easier to get where they're going once the project is complete," Goepferd continued.

For more information, please contact Monica Goepferd at 307-347-5100.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
