Many BLM Roads Impassable in Fremont County


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Lander Field Office announced today that many roads that access public land throughout Fremont County are impassable due to continuing unseasonably wet spring conditions.

The deteriorated condition of the road system may exist throughout the summer until roads can be repaired. Priority for repairs will be given to regularly maintained roads. Two-track roads will receive a lower repair priority and will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.

The Hudson-Atlantic City Road is impassable south of US 287/SR 789 to Atlantic City due to several washed-out culverts. Closure signs have been placed at both ends of the road.

The extent of the damage is still unknown. Please report the locations of impassable roads to the Lander Field Office at 307-332-8400 or to the Wind River/Bighorn Basin District Office 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.
