Damage from recent storms has closed the Slick Creek Road.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office announced today that Slick Creek Road east of Worland and south of U.S. Highway 16 is closed due to several washouts and a dangerous drop-off from recent storms and spring runoff.

BLM staff discovered the washouts Tuesday morning. Closure signs have been placed at either end of the road. Oil field access is not affected.

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.
