The BLM is proposing to stabilize and reconstruct the off-highway vehicle crossing on the trail, located near the Middle Fork of the Gulkana River and within the Tangle Lakes Archaeological District. The stream crossing eroded in 2013 due to a severe break up with unseasonably warm temperatures, followed by a significant rain event. Rocks and debris were deposited downstream of the original crossing. As a result, trail users created an alternate route through the area and much of the stream now flows down the old trail. The restoration work will take place in late summer and early fall of 2018.
Comments on the proposal will be accepted through July 27, 2018. Please submit comments through the project website at https://eplanning.blm.gov/epl-front-office.
