Spring Road Closures on Public Lands (03-05-13)

MONTE VISTA - The Rio Grande National Forest and Bureau of Land Management’s San Luis Valley Field Office will once again begin to temporarily close roads to motorized traffic to protect road surfaces during the spring season.   Driving on soft roadbeds can cause unnecessary damage to the roads and may lead to increased sedimentation in creeks.  The roads will be re-opened on an individual basis as road conditions improve.
For more information on current road conditions, visit the Rio Grande National Forest website at or call the San Luis Valley Public Lands Center at 719-852-5941.

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 sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
