National Forest Motorized Travel Management Comment Period Underway

Sonora, CA — The National Forest Service has announced the publication and availability of the Motorized Travel Management Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the public.

The Motorized Travel Management Draft Environmental Impact Statement is a part of a national effort to define transportation systems on every national forest. The goal is to develop a sustainable system of routes that provide an array of opportunities for access and recreation on national forest lands as well as protection of various resources by curtainling motorized cross country travel.

While the public comment period will close May 5, the final decisions are expected in August with a motor vehicle use map scheduled for release by the end of the year.
