BLM Extends Public Comment Period through August 13, 2018

The BLM's new interactive map tool that contains Lake Havasu Field Office's Alternative Route Networks for the Bouse and Cactus Plain Travel Management Areas is now available.  This interactive map also contains a commenting feature.  To try it, go to the "Maps" page (see left navigation pane), or click here.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Colorado River District, Lake Havasu Field Office has developed a Travel Management Plan (TMP) for the travel routes and route uses in the Bouse and Cactus Plain Travel Management Areas.  The travel management areas are located within Mohave and La Paz Counties, Arizona.  

The BLM has prepared an Environmental Assessment that analyzes a range of management options to address travel routes, route uses, and how the BLM proposes to manage motorized vehicle, OHV, and non-motorized public travel within the Travel Management Areas. 

The public scoping period ended in July, 2017.  Comments received during the scoping period were considered during preparation of the Environmental Assessment.  

The public comment period for the Environmental Assessment and Web Map is open through August 13, 2018. 

Comments may be submitted electronically by choosing "Comment on Map" next to the Web Map (see "Maps" page on left navigation pane) or Environmental Assessment (see "Documents" page on left navigation pane).  They may also be submitted in writing via email, fax or mail as listed under the "Contact Information" page (see left navigation pane).

Two public meetings will be held during the public comment period in the communities of Bouse and Parker, as follows:

June 12, 2018 from 4:00 - 7:00 P.M.

What is a Comprehensive Travel and Transportation Managment Plan?

A comprehensive travel and transportation management plan is a wide-ranging analysis considering the access needs of all public land users. Access needs are evaluated in conjunction with the BLM's legal mandate to protect natural and cultural resources on public lands. Individual route evaluations and designations that are included in the Comprehensive Travel and Transportation Management Plan will be analyzed in an environmental assessment. Based on this analysis; every route on BLM-managed lands will receive one of the following designations: 

Open: Route is open for use by the public.
Limited: Travel on this route is limited to the public in some form (seasonal restriction, administrative access,vehicle width restriction, non-motorized use, etc.).
Closed: closed.

Additional information, including contact information, draft maps showing existing routes and other available documents are located on this webpage using the links on the left navigation pane.
