The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is holding a series of Public Scoping Meetings on the proposed Ambler Road, a 211-mile-long mining access road across the southern foothills of the Brooks Range. The proposed road would connect the Ambler Mining District with the Dalton Highway. The BLM is the lead federal agency under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) developing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate whether or not to grant a right-of-way for the proposed Ambler Road across BLM-managed lands. To learn more about the proposed project and to provide input, please join us at one of the following locations:
