Consistent with the Forest Service travel planning regulations, the resulting available public motorized access routes and areas would be designated on a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM). Upon publishing the MVUM, public use of a motor vehicle other than in accordance with those designations would be prohibited. Comments concerning the scope of the analysis must be received by November 29, 2010. The draft environmental impact statement is expected July 2011 and the final environmental impact statement is expected January 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Purpose and Need for Action The overall objective of this proposal is to provide a manageable system of designated public motorized access routes and areas within the Blackfoot Travel area, consistent with and to achieve the purposes of Forest Service travel management regulations at 36 CFR 212 Subpart B. The existing system of available public motor vehicle routes and areas in the Blackfoot Travel area is the culmination of multiple agency decisions over recent decades. Public motor vehicle use of the majority of this available system continues to be manageable and consistent with the current travel management regulation. Exceptions have been identified, based on public input and the criteria listed at 36 CFR 212.55, and in these cases changes are proposed to meet the overall objectives. The decisions will ensure compliance with the Forest Plan and Interagency requirements for grizzly bear security and habitat within the recovery zone. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Proposed Action The Helena National Forest proposes the following changes to the existing motorized public access routes and prohibitions within the Blackfoot travel planning area. Consistent with the travel planning regulations at 36 CFR 212 Subpart B, the resulting available public motorized access routes and areas would be designated on a Motor Vehicle Use Map and the prohibition at 36 CFR 261.13 would take effect. 36 CFR 261.13 would prohibit public use of a motor vehicle other than in accordance with those designations. The proposed action would: • Change 1.8 miles of currently closed yearlong routes or user-created routes to open with seasonal restrictions. • Change 5.1 miles of seasonally restricted routes to having a different seasonal restriction. • Change 6.7 miles of currently closed yearlong or user-created routes to being open yearlong. • Change 9.4 miles of seasonally restricted routes to become open yearlong. • Put 82.1 miles of currently open routes into storage (where routes are self-maintaining in non-use status for up to 20 years by re-contouring access points, and removing culverts). • Change 2.5 miles of open seasonally or open yearlong routes to closed yearlong. • Close 7.9 miles (estimated) of usercreated routes. • Create 41.4 miles of new motorized trails from currently seasonally restricted, open yearlong, user-created, and previously decommissioned routes. • Create 1.5 miles of single-track motorized trail from currently doubletrack motorized trail. • Construct 1.6 miles of new road. • Place 65.5 miles of currently closed routes into storage. • Place 82.1 miles of currently open routes into storage. • Obliterate 8.1 miles of closed yearlong, open yearlong, or user-created routes. • Create 5.5 miles of non-motorized trails from currently closed or usercreated routes. • Create 1.5 miles of non-motorized trails from currently open or seasonally restricted routes. • Create 13.7 miles of non-motorized trails from currently single or doubletrack motorized routes. • Create 33 miles of mountain bike trails on Forest Service land (may also include non-motorized or motorized uses).
