West Mojave Route Network Project*

The Bureau of Land Management released a Record of Decision (ROD) for the West Mojave Route Network Project (WMRNP) that amends the California Desert Conservation Area Plan and approves a travel and transportation route network with nine Travel Management Plans. The route network accesses approximately 3.1 million acres of BLM-managed public lands in the western portion of the Mojave Desert, including parts of San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Riverside, Kern, and Inyo counties.

The route network project provides increased access to recreation areas and points of interests, connectivity, and consistency across jurisdictional boundaries. It addresses the need for public, authorized and administrative access to and across BLM-managed lands, including motorized, non-motorized and non-mechanized modes of travel. It also eliminates parallel and redundant routes and allows restoration to address use impacts and improve resource conditions.
 
The entire planning area covers 9.4 million acres of the California Desert Conservation Area, which includes lands managed by federal, private and military entities. The BLM prepared the WMRNP ROD and Approved Land Use Plan Amendment (LUPA)/Final Supplemental Environment Impact Statement (FSEIS) pursuant to a U.S. District Court Order.
 
The route network project aligns with Secretarial Orders 3347, 3356 and 3366, increasing outdoor recreational opportunities, advancing conservation stewardship and restoring trust as a good neighbor through sound travel management of public lands. The selected alternative is consistent with the omnibus lands act, John D. Dingell Jr. Conservation, Management and Recreation Act of 2019 (PL 116-9).
 
The ROD and Approved LUPA/FSEIS are now available on ePlanning below in the documents tab. The Director's Protest Summary Report containing Protest Resolution is now available on BLM’s Protests Resolution Reports page. Any party adversely affected by the approved route designations may appeal within 30 days of publication of the Notice of Availability in the Federal Register pursuant to 43 CFR, part 4, subpart E.  The appeal must be filed with the California Desert District Manager, 22835 Calle San Juan de Los Lagos, Moreno Valley, CA 92553.  Please consult the appropriate regulations (43 CFR, part 4, subpart E) for further appeal requirements. 
 
Before including addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, or other personal identifying information in a comment, be aware that the entire comment—including personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While someone may ask the BLM to withhold personal identifying information from public review, the BLM cannot guarantee that it will be able to do so.
 
The BLM manages more than 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. Diverse activities authorized on these lands generated $96 billion in sales of goods and services throughout the American economy in fiscal year 2017. These activities supported more than 468,000 jobs.
