Bureau of Land Management plans work on Shoshone Lake Road

LANDER. Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management Lander Field Office will delay the opening of the Shoshone Lake Road this month to complete needed road maintenance. The work is scheduled to be complete by the end of June.
Roadwork will include the addition and compaction of road materials and improvements to drainage.
The Shoshone Lake Road is closed seasonally for public safety and resource protection. The closure normally runs from early December through mid-June but this year, by delaying the opening of the road, the BLM can accomplish these needed improvements.
For more information, please contact the Lander Field Office at 307-332-8400. Follow @BLMWyoming on Facebook and Twitter for an update on the road’s reopening.

This year, we invite everyone to reimagine your public lands as we celebrate 75 years of the BLM’s stewardship and service to the American people. The BLM manages approximately 245 million acres of public land located primarily in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The agency’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.
