SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 4, 2018, the Utah Department of Transportation submitted an application for a right-of-way (ROW) grant for the Northern Corridor project north of the city of St. George, Utah, on BLM-managed public lands in the Red Cliffs NCA and the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve—an area set aside for Mojave desert tortoise mitigation under the 1995 Washington County Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP). The FWS is working with Washington County (County) on an HCP pursuant to Section 10(a)(1)(B) of the ESA in response to the proposed Northern Corridor project and other development in the county. The BLM is also considering amendments to the St. George Field Office and Red Cliffs NCA RMPs that would allow consideration of and mitigation for the proposed Northern Corridor project. The EIS will analyze four proposed actions: (1) Whether the BLM will approve a 1.75-mile ROW section of the approximately 4-mile long Northern Corridor project that crosses the 62,000acre Red Cliffs Desert Reserve and the 45,000-acre congressionally established Red Cliffs NCA; (2) Whether the BLM will amend the Red Cliffs NCA RMP to allow for a transportation ROW and/or corridor within the NCA; (3) Whether the BLM will amend the St. George Field Office RMP to modify management on approximately 6,800 acres outside the Reserve and NCA to offset the ROW impacts; and (4) Whether the FWS will issue an associated ITP for the Mojave desert tortoise for specific land use and land development activities in Washington County.
