LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. – The Bureau of Land Management Lake Havasu Field Office has issued a decision record approving the Bouse and Cactus Plain Travel Management Plan designating a travel route network for motorized and non-motorized uses across a 1,225 square mile project area within Mohave and La Paz counties.

The decision is based on an environmental assessment prepared by the BLM, in consultation with other agencies, stakeholders, and the public, to evaluate the potential impacts of the travel management plan. The BLM analyzed and considered four alternatives that addressed non-motorized and motorized modes of travel and access for recreational and other traditional uses, while considering potential impacts to cultural resources, wildlife, vegetative communities, soils, and visual resources.

The Bouse and Cactus Plain Travel Management Plan was developed to provide an array of outdoor travel opportunities for motorized and non-motorized users, to provide access for a wide range of motorized uses, and to protect the public from safety hazards, all while protecting natural and cultural resources.

The plan addresses off-highway vehicle use in the area, including at the three OHV open areas. The BLM will continue work with OHV clubs and organizations to promote the responsible use of OHVs on public lands.

“This travel management plan will provide recreation enthusiasts with another excellent opportunity to get out and enjoy our public lands in Mohave and La Paz counties,” said William Mack, Colorado River District Manager.

The public can review the decision record, the finding of no significant impact document, and the final environmental assessment (which includes responses to public comments on the analysis), by visiting the agency’s National NEPA Register project webpage.
