Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

SUMMARY:

Notice is hereby given that certain BLM public lands in Alpine County, CA, west of Foothill Road, which include the mouth of Faye Canyon and Luther Creek, are closed to all motorized vehicles. The recent opening of a Forest Service parking lot and trailhead adjacent to the subject BLM lands has dramatically increased the potential for motorized public access. This temporary closure is necessary to preclude potential adverse effects to soils, vegetation, cultural, wildlife and riparian resources.

EFFECTIVE DATES:

This closure goes into effect upon publication in the Federal Register, and will remain in effect until the Manager, Carson City Field Office, determines it is no longer needed.
