SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Prior to 2010, the BLM Gunnison Field Office used the BLM's 1980
Transportation Plan and the 2001 Gunnison Interim Travel Plan to manage
travel on BLM-managed lands. As required in the 2001 Travel Plan, the
BLM and the U.S. Forest Service embarked on a planning process to
develop a more definitive and comprehensive system of routes across
Federal lands in the Gunnison Basin. The two agencies jointly published
a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
in the Federal Register at 72 FR 24267 (May 2, 2007). They subsequently
published the Gunnison Basin Federal Lands Travel Management Plan EIS
(CO-160-2008-025-EIS). Following analysis of the public comments, the
BLM issued a decision record on June 28, 2010. The 2010 TMP replaces
the 1980 Transportation Plan and the 2001 Interim Travel Plan. These
final supplementary rules enable the BLM to implement several key
decisions contained in the 2010 TMP to protect natural resources and
provide for public health and safety. No other existing rules are
affected by these final supplementary rules. The proposed supplementary
rules were published in the Federal Register at 78 FR 26804 on May 8,
2013, and the public comment period ended July 8, 2013. The final
supplementary rules are consistent with the Decision Record for the
TMP, which was approved on June 28, 2010.
    These final supplementary rules apply to public lands administered
by the BLM Gunnison Field Office. The 2010 TMP area consists of
approximately 585,012 acres of public lands within Gunnison, Montrose,
Hinsdale, and Saguache counties, Colorado, in the following described
townships:
