Notice of Emergency Temporary Closure of Certain Public Lands, to Motorized Vehicles, in Owyhee County ID, Under Sailor Cap Emergency and Rehabilitation Plan
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Jarbidge Field Office, in order to protect natural resources and stabilization treatments conducted following the 2006 Sailor Cap Fire, is implementing an emergency temporary closure to all motorized vehicle traffic off established roads which are capable of being traveled by full size vehicles (e.g. all-terrain vehicles, pickups, motorcycles, sport utility vehicles, snowmobiles, etc.) within the fire perimeter and along fenced livestock allotments. The closure area follows the most logical boundaries according to transportation routes (please refer to supplementary information for description of closure area). The purpose of the closure is to restrict off-road vehicle use while providing continued public access to and through the area. Vehicles traveling cross-country in a burned area may damage reemerging plants, increase erosion and spread noxious weeds. Motorized vehicles may continue to use established roads capable of being traveled by full size vehicles.
