SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Roads Closed to Motorized Vehicle Use The Con Shea (#GXW7) fire closure affects roads crossing public lands located in Owyhee County, Idaho approximately 10 miles northeast of Murphy, which burned June 13–16, 2012. The roads affected by this closure are found in: Boise Meridian, Idaho T. 2 S., R. 1 W., secs. 4, 9–10, and T. 2 S., secs. 24–25, and 36, and T. 2 S., R. 1 E., sec. 30. Both roads are shown on the map named ‘‘Con Shea Closures.’’ The Con Shea fire road closure, which accounts for approximately 4 miles of road, is necessary because the roads and adjacent public lands are at risk from further damage by motorized vehicles. Road structure and integrity has been compromised due to heavy use from suppression efforts, and there is the potential for increased overland travel and resource damage. The road closures will eliminate possible new resource damage until precipitation events allow for the roads to pack and are safely passable again. These closures will remain effective for 24 months from the date this notice is published in the Federal Register.
