Start Supplemental Information
An NPRM was published in the Federal Register of March 30, 2016 (81 FR 17619), to establish new temporary restricted areas R-2509E, R-2509W, and R-2509N to accommodate a United States Marine Corps (USMC) Large Scale Exercise (LSE) on new Twentynine Palms lands planned for August 1 to August 18, 2016. The proposed new temporary restricted areas would support live fire activities including anti-tank weapons, mortars, and artillery, as well as Unmanned Aircraft Systems, fixed wing, and rotary wing training activities conducting close air support and live ordnance delivery. Efforts to mitigate the aeronautical impacts associated with the proposed action have been unsuccessful and there is no longer sufficient time remaining to complete the actions required to process the airspace proposal in time for the August 1, 2016, exercise start date. Therefore, the NPRM is being withdrawn.
