FS Requests Public Input Regarding Review of Austin and Tonopah Travel Mgmt Plans

Travel Management regulations provide for revision of designated roads, as needed.  As the Austin and Tonopah Travel Management Plan has been implemented,  District staff have received comments from the public that there are roads that were overlooked, roads that may not be passable to the vehicle class identified, and roads and trails that may need different designations.  Between now and November of 2012, Austin and Tonopah District staff are requesting public comments and participation to identify where changes may be needed to the overall Forest Transportation System.

Over the next eight months, District staff will be available by appointment to review the maps and talk about specific concerns. The Austin Office is located at 100 Midas Canyon Road, in Austin, Nevada, and the Tonopah Office is located at 1400 S. Erie Main Street, in Tonopah, Nevada.

The Austin Office telephone number is 775-964-2671.  The Tonopah Office telephone number is 775-482-6286.

All interested parties are encouraged to review the Austin and Tonopah Ranger Districts' Motor Vehicle Use Maps, which are available at the District Offices or on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest web site at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/htnf/home/?cid=stelprdb5246242
