The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has prepared a Travel Management Plan for motorized and mechanized uses for the Murphy Subregion which is a BLM planning unit in the Owyhee Front located between Wilson Creek and Castle Creek.
The Plan is open for public comment until October 24. The proposed action in the Plan would designate a route system composed of 834 miles of roads and trails, and would close 436 miles of roads and trails that are either parallel to other roads and trails or the uses are resulting in environmental damage.
Comments can be sent to BLM at First Avenue South, Marsing, ID 83639 or via email to ID_Murphy_TMP@blm.gov.
The Plan can be viewed at www.blm.gov/id/st/en/info/nepa/Owyhee/murphy_subregion_travel.html.
