Notice of Final Supplementary Rules for Public Lands in Colorado:
Public Lands Administered by the Bureau of Land Management, Royal Gorge
Field Office, Arkansas River Travel Management Area in Chaffee, Custer,
and Fremont Counties
AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
ACTION: Notice of Final Supplementary Rules.
SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is establishing
supplementary rules to regulate conduct on public lands within the
Arkansas River Travel Management Area (ARTMA) in Chaffee, Custer, and
Fremont Counties, Colorado. These supplementary rules address decisions
found in the Arkansas River Travel Management Plan (ARTMP). Travel
management actions and changes to the off-highway vehicle (OHV)
designations were detailed and analyzed in an Environmental Assessment
(EA). The Royal Gorge Field Office (RGFO) signed a Finding of No
Significant Impact (FONSI) on December 18, 2007. The BLM issued two
Decision Records following the ARTMP EA: one on April 29, 2008, to
amend OHV designations identified in the EA, and a second on May 21,
2008, to implement the travel management actions identified in the EA.
The rules were published in the Federal Register as a proposal on July
23, 2010 and public comment was solicited. The Decision Records
included revising travel regulations for the area including bicycle
use, identifying shooting restrictions, and limiting an area to a
certain vehicle type. These travel regulations are designed to provide
for public health and safety and to protect natural resources within
the ARTMA.DATES: Effective Date: These supplementary rules are effective March
