—NOTICE OF GUNNISON COUNTY AND BLM ROAD CLOSURES—
Gunnison County, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the United States Forest Service (USFS) have temporarily closed a number of roads to all motor vehicles to protect Gunnison Sage-grouse during their mating season and to prevent road damage during wet spring conditions.

Copies of the closure list and maps are available at Gunnison County Public Works, 811 Rio Grande Avenue; Gunnison County Administration Office, 200 E. Virginia Ave; Colorado Division of Wildlife Office, 300 W. New York; and the Bureau of Land Management/USFS Office, 216 N. Colorado; Gunnison, Colorado. These closures apply to all motor vehicles.
